    Schneider-Kreuznach misprint

    Hi,

    I've come across Schneider-Kreuznach Tele-Arton 180mm lens that appears to have a misprint. It has an 'r' instead of 'n' in Schneider (see photo). I've looked very closely at this, through a microscope, and determined that the 'n' wasn't etched off or anything, it looks very much like a genuine misprint. I can't find any information online about it's origin or pricing.

    Does anyone know anything about this??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Human beings make mistakes... and sometimes they get past the QC office.
    You should photograph some storefronts and see if the lens mis-spells any of the signs...
    Oh, and welcome to the forum!

    Very interesting. Unfortunately I don't think old lenses are like coins, the misprinted coin might be worth much more money, the misprinted lens probably not so much.

    Does that mean my Simon and Garfunkel record with the Ramsey Lewis back cover will make good images?

    I once went to work for a Hope Processor distributor in NJ called Simplex Speciality. They bought me a New Plymouth as a company car. But frequently after calling on a customer I would walk right past where it was parked. Then one day, walking back to the car I passed I realized why. The front of the car said Dodge. The back said Plymouth.
    So, I thought I had something that would be worth more then either. So I called Chrysler in Detroit and told them that I thought that I had a rare car. The customer service guy asked why, I told him and he said “Oh, you got one also?”

    Depends. Were you a millionaire before finding this lens?

    This lens was made in Soviet Block era East Germany by a competitor.
