Graceful and Rare Lens

The Ultra Micro Nikkor 135mm F4 is one of the more graceful and rare lens for the Ultra Micro Nikkor series.
As you know, it was introduced in 1965 from Nippon Kogaku, Japan.
The UMN 135mm F4 consisted of seven elements set in a black painted barrel with 62mm screw thread.
The rim of the lens is engraved as " M=1/25" with red character.
The Ultra Micro Nikkor 135mm F4 used 62mm accessories.
A Nikon 62mm filter, for example, a Nikon 62mm L37C filter is just fit to her.
You can see very beautiful and mysterious umber coating on the lens.
