Legendary Soviet portrait lens Helios-44M 58mm f2 with Nikon F mount, based on the famous Carl Zeiss Biotar.
Professionally adjusted for Nikon F cameras including focusing infinity. Optical scheme not changed, the same as original M42 Helios-44M.

The lens is in excellent++ fully working condition with moderate signs of use on the body (see photos for details). The optics is clear, without haze, fungus etc. and with some usual for an old lens dust inside. The focusing is working good. The aperture blades are free of oil.

I tested this Helios-44M with a Nikon DSLR camera and it worked as should.
