Rare early MIOJ LTM Nikon Nikkor 8.5cm f/2 lens set for Leica screwmount cameras

Rare early (MIOJ) LTM Nikon Nikkor 8.5cm f/2 lens set for Leica screwmount cameras. The lens is in superb condition, with scarcely any signs of use on the barrel, smooth focusing and aperture rings, clean diaphragm blades, and near-perfect glass, with no haze, fungus or cleaning marks, just a little internal dust and the slightly uneven coating that is typical of early Nikon lenses. The lens is marked MIOJ (“made in occupied Japan”) on the rangefinder cam, as is the black bakelite front lens cap. The lens also comes with original lens hood, leather case, and blue velvet box. As is often the case with early hand-assembled Nikon lenses, image quality is outstanding, and this lens is much sharper than later Nikon 85mm lenses I have owned.
