I can't read it either and the guy won't answer my question. All he would say is that it came off an 8x10. That doesn't mean anything. Al ot of wrong lenses were mounted on view camera by people who didn't know better.
Ilex says it is for 8x12. Reading between their lines, it is a tessar type.
Go root around on the cameraeccentric site and educate yourself a little. If you knew more you wouldn't have to be so suspicious.
