Legacy Lenses - the good... the bad... the ugly?

I don't shoot portraits enough (or... at all really) to justify the 45mm or 75mm.  But I'd like to play with a legacy lens in that range.

I've found many on the local craigslist listings.

Any hints for telling the good, the bad and the ugly apart?  There are many many varied choices and I'm trying to find the right one.

Also, if the person isn't sure what mount it is for, is there any way to tell?

I found these so far:
