    I remember many years ago, it took me quite awhile to figure out a Goerz Double-Anastigmat Series Ib is a 4-element Celor/Artar formula, while a Double-Anastigmat Series III is a 6 element Dagor formula. I think that was in the days before internet, so I probably learned the difference in the two Series from "Handbook of Photography" by Henney and Dudley.

    darkroomdivision9 - The weird aperture scale sounds like it is probably the old US (Uniform System) stops. You can research that one too. Unfortunate that the aperture isn't functioning.

    Sometimes an iris can be repaired if it isn't too damaged. The numbers are from an obsolete system but the anchor is f16. It's the same in both system's, so you can count stops either side of 16 if you get the iris working.
