This is a very limited and special run of the 50mm f2 Summicron-R 1st version chrome lens.
Very few of these were ever made in Silver chrome as they were designed for the Leicaflex cameras but the chrome finish was interfering with the accuracy of the light meter reading on the front of the camera so they quickly discontinued the silver lenses after making only a very few examples.
