Front element with several microscopic cleaning marks that will not have a noticeable effect on image quality. Preset aperture mechanism functioning properly, there is no oil on the aperture blades. The glass is clean and clear.
When I shine a bright flashlight through the glass, I see a small chipping of the glass on the edge of the inner lens, And also a very small calcified transparent formation on the edge of the front lens, which is impossible to see when looking at the glass and not visible in the pictures. These details do not affect the pictures that the lens takes.
