The way to differentiate FD lenses from FDn ("new" FD) lenses is that they don't have the silver ring around them. This is a locking mechanism to keep dust out on FD cameras, but it doesn't function as well as it should when you place these kinds of lenses on an adapter.

FDn lenses are generally SSC as opposed to SC lenses, SSC lenses will have better contrast and generally reduced lens flare. The other way of getting an SSC lens as opposed to an SC lens is to look for the lenses with a faster aperture. Generally the faster the aperture, the better the quality of glass.
