Right, probably going to be some seller's regret on my part but these will pave the way for another purchase and I need to consolidate the 'stash'.

Pentacon 30mm f/3.5 M42 - purchased from Lennybloke (if I'm not mistaken). Nice little lens, no obvious issues. Works well. - 35.

Super-Takumar 35mm f/3.5 M42 - bought (again) from Lennybloke (herein 'LB), a beautiful little example, or at least it was until it took the brunt of a tumble after my camera strap got caught on a drawer handle. Excellently sharp little lens, fall seems to have only dented the filter ring and everything appears to work as it should. I'll gladly accept returns on this one if the buyer isn't happy. 35.

SMC-Takumar 135mm f/3.5 M42 - Great little lens, nice throw and beautiful rendering. I find it well damped but prefer a lighter helicoid as found in my SMC-M 135mm f/3.5 so that's won over this one. 40.

SMC-M 85mm f/2 PK. Bought as it was described as having 'haze', but cleaned up well. Has a bit of dust internally as a result of my cleaning operation. Slight scratch to the rear element's retaining housing but nothing on glass. Works wonderfully and with a little de-dusting would be an excellent example - 90.

SMC-M 200mm f/4 PK - bought with a slight speck of fungus or similar on the rear element. Doesn't appear to have progressed and I haven't got around to cleaning it as a result. Would be a great example with that rear element cleaned. No obvious detriment to image quality - 25.

Auto-Chinon 50mm f/1.4 PK - another from LB... A very slight patch of haze on the edge of the rear element that may clean with the right tools, but I've not given it much attempt as it works okay with it. Slightly glowy wide-open but that may be a quality of the lens. Otherwise, great little lens with huge vibrancy and pop. - 50.

Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 M42 - The classic version. I've cleaned this one a little bit and snugged up a couple of loose retaining rings. Purchased from LB - 280.

Elicar V-HQ 90mm f/2.5 Macro PKA - (stuck record alert) from LB... Excellent macro lens with a significant throw, so actually very suitable for anyone doing dedicated macro-work with it, especially on a tripod, as it's very easy to fine-tune focus. Focus ring is on the more dampened side, but not uncomfortable to use hand-held either. In PKA mount - 130.

May have a couple more to list before too long. If my pricing is out, feel free to let me know.
I'll grab pictures for anyone who want them.
Prices include postage and discounts available for multiple purchases.
Special Delivery for anything that totals over 100.

Should all of this go quickly I might also have a Voigtlander Ultron SL-ii 40mm f/2 + Close-up attachment in PKA mount to go up for sale...

Prices dropped for the remaining items as the lens I've been looking at is available at a reduced price.
Pentacon 30mm f/3.5 M42 - 25
Super-Takumar 35mm f/3.5 M42 - 30
SMC-Takumar 135mm f/3.5 M42 - 35
Auto-Chinon 50mm f/1.4 PK - 40
Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 M42 - 270
Elicar V-HQ 90mm f/2.5 Macro PKA - 110

Or, take the lot for 450 which would leave some nice profit to be had if sold separately, I'm sure.
