Is this entry correct ?

Price seems way high compared to the other prices.

It is correct according to the auction site. Site itself may be wrong though...

I think it must be a mistake - there was one bid for 800 € - the auction house itself has the expected price in the 140-180 range, with opening price 120 Euro if you click on the One bid link it states 120 Euro - I think the lens was sold at 120 €

I think you are right, just changed the record. Not sure what happened to the listing.
Now I wonder how many other errors could be out there.

Note the Asterisk next to the serial number.

There were "Summitar *" lenses that were prototypes of the Thorium glass Summicrons. I'm betting that someone saw the "*" ans took a gamble on the lens. Some manufacturers also used * to denote duplicate serial numbers, as done with repairs.

Either way- the SN with the * is unusual; if the lens was a prototype- worth the price. I believe the SN is too early to be the prototype Summicron.

Ah, the star! Thanks for pointing this out, Brian! I may have confused it with WestLicht auction - they mark smaller VAT items with star. There is a separate listing for the prototype model, but that one is for actual prototypes (Summitar *), not s/n *.
You are right, someone may have confused it with prototype lens. I removed the sale altogether.
