I took a chance and bought this from E-Bay. Glass is surprisingly clean and clear, no haze fungus scratches or cleaning marks. However I am puzzled as it appears to be coated or bloomed . I have 1930's ZEISS glass that is bloomed. Information that I have found indicates that LEITZ did not coat 1937 lenses. Can someone enlighten me regarding this? Photo was made on an overcast day no blue in the sky.

Coating lenses can be obtained later, I think when the service was available decades later.

I have two Summar 5cm , one not coated and the other one shows coating reflections.

Yes, coating for old lenses was offered as a standard service in the '50s ... I seem to remember that someone in the Forum even displayed a pricelist that quoted this service, together with the other "body upgrade" services offered ...
