    Do you mean 165mm f:4,5 Xenar?

    Those haven't been produced for many decades - not since the "postcard plate" size (10x15cm) went out of fashion. Is it a dial-set Compur? Is it coated or uncoated?

    If (as I would guess) it's an uncoated lens in a dial-set Compur, then the price is about right for an exceptionally nice one.

    Sounds like a great deal to me!
