Rare. Coating damage.
Nippon-Kogaku Nikkor-Q 5cm f/3.5 in Elmar-type collapsible mount #460362. Optical unit is late wartime production (early 1945), perhaps originally for Seiki Canon S, or possibly for military use. LTM focusing mount is pre-Tokyo, pre-MIOJ, with at least some Leica parts (DOF ring goes to f/18, diaphragm to f/16), and distance scale in metres. Coating is indicated by a red dot instead of the red C adopted subsequently (cfr.. thesequence of lenses illustrated in Kitchingham, Canon Rangefinder Lenses, p. 32-33). Not Canon J-mount (fits and couples perfectly on Leicas), most probably a prototype for the LTM Nikkors supplied in 1946 for Nippon cameras.
