Saw it was sold, did you buy it? I think the precurser to the Leica Summar was the Schneider Xenon but doesn't look like a prewar lens. Odd that this is a Schneider Retina lens as Retina cameras had leaf shutters so I would expect to have been modified or have an adapter and not be rangefinder coupled, especially at that price. The Schneider Retina Xenons for Retina Reflexes were f1.9 and are quite good lenses. Just carried one around on my CL.
