    Does anybody know which type this lens is?

    serial: 2317xxx

    http://www.antiquecameras.net/ states that:

    35 Summicron F2 Type 1 - 1,631,xxx - 2,3xx,000
    35 Summicron F2 Type 2 - 2,3xx,000 - 2,461,000

    I there a way to figure out if it is one or the other?

    I haven't seen pictures of the lens yet, I just found it on sale.

    All the best
    Niels

    There is a list of serial number series used for each lens on Camera Quest site or use google.
