Did I make a wise purchase or not? 56mm f/1.2 for $729

I bought a used 56mm f/1.2 from a local camera store. I can return it for two weeks.  It has some wear on the body of the lens (scuffed off paint - can see some silver).  Also, there is a visible mark somewhere in the glass.  The store said the front element, but it looks like it's within the lens.

I've only taken a few shots with it, and it seems fine.  I figured for the price + tax it cost me $800.  On Amazon they go for $900 used.

Anything I should watch out for?  Opinions?
