Additional information:

Asahi Takumar 135mm f/3.5 (Preset) is a telephoto prime lens for 35 mm SLR cameras with the M42 screw mount.

This is the second version of the 135mm f/3.5 Takumar that Asahi produced.  It can be immediately identified from it's later and previous siblings because of it's polished silver and black appearance.  It is also a preset lens.  Later versions (all black) are semi-automatic and carry the Auto-Takumar name. Previous version of 1953 (all silver) labeled the Asahi Kogaku Takumar name.
