-There is a very Very VERY faint amount of haze but I don't want to clean the lens because it is so clean and many of these have marks on the glass. Some evaporation of the side liner but only cosmetic.
This is a very nice example and glass is really very nice. No marks on the glass so I am not going to have this cleaned. As the lucky new owner wishes they may do with it as they want but it is very nice the way it is.
I can not stress the importance of this INTENSE rich Yellow Glass. Fabulous to have and enjoy. Beautiful in every respect!
