Nikkor 50mm Ais f1.2 Fragility ??? Worried on purchase!

So I have ordered a used (but mint condition) 50mm Ais f1.2 lens from Japan.

Whilst I am waiting for it to arrive I actually read Ken Rockwell's review - and noticed the section on fragility and the small thin cantilever pin on the inside of the lens barrel.

I looked at the bay photo of the one I ordered and I cant see that small pin anywhere?

So have I bought a damaged lens?...or is there something that I am missing ?

The above is the one from Ken Rockwells review - you can see the small pin.

Have I got anything to worry about??? Getting concerned!
