I'm sure when I bought the lens with a Crown Graphic it came fitted with a 39mm--58mm stepping ring for filters. Both front cells are 42mm OD, and fit rim-set Compur/Coplal 1 shutters.

    Trying to eyeball it with a ruler it looks like 39mm is correct for the filter threads. This is for the rimset Compur version 135mm f4.5.

    Just to add/repeat the advice given thusfar, I used the Zeiss/Ikon Sonnenblende A37 1112. It fit inside the Tessar 135, and would fit over a Skopar 135.

    Is it 42mm push on or 52mm, can't work it out even from literature.....duh

    It is possible it may be neither. Some German lenses actually used the Eastman "Series" threading.

    Then your Tessar takes 42mm filters/hood.

    Btw, the threads on these older Tessars are for the front element retaining ring only, and not for filters.

    No, actually I wrote the "btw" part so that no one would buy 35,5mm filters to find out that the thread pitch is wrong.
