I have two late Super Ikonta 111's with coated Novars.
Initially I wished they had Tessars but to my surprise both these Novars are tack sharp once stopped down some, easily as good as a Tessar.
The Novars are triplet lenses, mostly made by Rodenstock with a few by Hendsolt.
I cant vouch for the older uncoated ones, but Ivor Matanle has some photos in his book taken with Novars
