  Any 135mm f/4 Nikon Rangefinder lens is very difficult to find.  They were made only for the Nikon One and Nikon M, and then replaced with the much more numerous 135/3.5.   The 523 serial block variation is all but unknown   because it was not included in Robert Rotoloni's landmark book on Nikon Rangefinders. Above it is shown with its leather case, custom hood, and Bakelite front and back lens caps. 

Apparently the last 135mm f/4 version, the 523 series seems to have a better quality of fit and finish than the earlier 135mm f/4 versions.   It has no aperture click stops, and has "Made In Occupied Japan" on the focusing cam.
