Problem Voigtlander 35 f2 Ultron

Only being an amateur lens mechanic - it also looks like the front element would be “easiest” to insert reversed.  Also easiest to fix.  But I would wonder about clearance and whether that reversed lens (if it is that) might actually impact on the next group (ouch?).

Otherwise the second group from the rear might be capable of being reversed - not so sure  about the rearmost - it would be screamingly obvious if fitted back to front.

I wonder if KEH had actually tested the lens if it is in such a bad way.

K&F has a good reputation for its adapters but I did get one adapter from them which was not the correct depth (by exactly 1mm).

The lens of course was “new” second hand - which description had me tricked for a moment until I saw the image of the lens.
