You know what? With any luck it just might be a Toko lens. It's not spelled Tokyo on the auction listing. It's Toko. I couldn't find anything with that name on it so I just figured it was supposed to be Tokyo. But they may have spelled it right.
Check this out, read all the way down about the lenses for this thing...
I'm bookmarking this entry just in case. Delivery F or Sat. I'm going to put up some pics that night to see anyone can ID it for real here. I'd appreciate it if you guys would chime in if you do see something you recognize then okay?
Might be something like this. This sounds about right. The company apparently went to calling themselves TopCon later, but their earlier lenses had Toko. Can't be worth much but likely it's one of these. Case looks similar too, right company only later, but this one is labeled Tokyo, not Toko. I'm thinking he earlier rangefinder ones were the ones labeled Toko instead because of reading the above. It's all very interesting anyway regardless.
