Leica Zeiss Hologon 15mm F8 M bayonet mount lens 
Serial #5736058. 

This is the only lens Leica commissioned another company to make for them. 
The only time you will see another company's name on a lens and sold in a Leica box. 
This extremely rare and highly collectable lens comes complete with all its extras. 

Including its original front/rear lens caps, a Carl Zeiss 4x centre weight chrome ND filter, original viewfinder w/built in spirit level and original matching box. The filter proper and marked FOR LEICA as is the correct filter made by Carl Zeiss specially designed for the 15mm Hologon lenses. 
Even includes the original plastic wrap the filter came sealed in when it was sold back in the 70s as the filter has its own separate Leica code 13002 and matched sticker on the side of the box.

Made for Leica M cameras. Very collectable and hard to find. 
Only 225 examples were ever made. 

A beautiful extremely wide angle lens. Sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. The finest optics made by Zeiss for your M bayonet mount camera. I have seen a number of examples of this lens over the years and this is by far the cleanest example I have ever seen, many examples (even clean examples) will have Schneideritis in the glass. The inner barrel of this lens is just beautiful. Cosmetically mint. You can see from the pictures that this lens has been babied its entire life. Basically AS NEW OPEN BOX
