I'm actually surprised you have a super ikonta with a simple Novar -- I thought the Supers were more upscale with Tessars. The much simpler Ikomats and so forth, without rangefinders, more general market, had the Novars.

But if it says Novar, it's Novar. Before you go taking it apart and spending bux on repairs, why not run some film through it and see how the images come out? It is amazing how little most lens damage really hurts the final picture. Sometimes it even gives it a "classic" look that people like, but mostly you can't tell.
