Beautiful lens with petzval optical scheme and smooth bokeh
That is quite a special lens. Do you know what it was used for originally? It says "Philips Germany", makes me think about the Hamburg factory where X-ray equipment was manufactured.
To be fair I have the same questions. All I know it's made for Philips by Schneider Kreuznach, sign "SK" means this. Also it has non-standard back size with 63.5mm instead of 62.5mm for most common projection lens so I reduced diameter on lathe to 62.5 to use it with my helicoid adapter.
Nice set. You sure do have a unique set of glass to work with
