blue purple coating.. the colour of Zeiss Red T coating.. of course if not as good as nowadays Carl Zeiss T* coating. according to the Serial Number.. this lens was made in the year between 1952-1955. in another words.. this lens is roughly 60 years-old !!!

that's my new Zeiss Biotar 75mm f1.5... some said this was Zeiss failure product that creates massive swirly bokeh.. some say it's the characteristic of this lens.. just depends on how you look at it. this lens is in Exakta mount.. it require some mount replacement before i can use it on my camera. can't wait for it.. huhuhu
