The bottom lens 105/4.5 probably meant to be 105mm f/4 or is it the uv lens? that should be interesting!

hmm, that serial number starts with 20xxxxxx. Those two clues were enough for me.
Thought it would make a nice Christmas present  ;)

Wow, Klaus, you got the UV Nikkor for 1/4 of a usual price and the rest for free!  Congrats!

I was sure, you would see that! Yes, hence why I offered that seller a good price for the set!  ;-)

Look here, most on my site is done with that special quartz/fluorite UV lens http://uvir.eu

Basically it is about this, making the (for us) invisible UV (300-400nm), visible (as we see only 400-750nm)!

The UV "Nikkor" has long been discontinued but it is still available from Tochigi Nikon as "UV 105" on order.  When I inquired about the price several years ago, it was about 5,000 USD brand new.
