Mystery Zeiss Winkel 10 Ap. 0,25 microscope lens

Post by AlxndrBrg »

I recently found a cheap used Zeiss lens for which I cant find any documentation or mention on the net. I took a chance it was worth it, its not super sharp in the corners etc, but for the price of 20€ I'd say it was worth it.

I noticed that on the side it had a hand engraved numer "646" which made me wonder how old this lens is, especially as there's nothing about it on the net.

When googling "Zeiss Winkel 10 Ap. 0,25" the only hits I can see is from the actual auction I got it from (tradera)

Does anyone know something about this lens?
