    Sounds like Taylor Hobson, the British opitics company. Probably 1950s or 60s, maybe? Quite good optics in their day but quite old, now, I expect.

    There are a few here for sale to give you an idea of price:

    I have a Taylor 75mm F3.5 lens. It also has the name "Tayon" on it. I have used it for midformat printing with good results. Mine is an e bay purchase so no additional info.
