    Won in an eBay auction for $6.49. (The other two currently for sale on eBay are running in the $30-40 range.)

    The description read: "I know nothing about lenses for cameras. What I do know this lens came in a leather pouch with the name Argus on the top of the leather container. Around the lens are the words Tele-Sandmar 100 mm F:4.5 Nr. 3696 C Enna Werk Munchen Germany. On another ring on the lense it says Made in Germany US-Zone. US pat. pend. It has screw caps on both ends. Everything seems to be operational. Opened up it is 3 1/4", close it is 2 3/4". Both measurements are with a sunshade attached."

      I bid on it several days ago on a lark, with a $10 max bid, knowing I wouldn't get it. But when I logged into eBay today to leave feedback on the Bricks, I found I'd won a portrait lens! W00t!

      That was a really good buy. Be sure and check inside the lens case lid to see if there is finder/mask tucked in there.

      What's a finder/mask? I googled it, and read some random forum posts with the words in them, but in spite of my massive intellect am unable to determine the meaning by context because I DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. Just sayin'.

      There is finder mounted on the C3 on the right in this image:

      I'll look some more.....Sorry about that. I could have been more clear.

      Here is a whole page with finders and masks for use with tele and wide angle C3 lenses. www.arguscg.org/accessories/vf-c.shtml

      Ah, thank you, fedglass! My Land camera's portrait lense has a finder.

      Alas, this lens arrived today and does not have one, but you can tell where it used to be because there's a depression inside the case where it sat.
