Anyone know anything about Navitar lenses - who made/makes them, when were they made, quality etc?

Navitar lenses are flat-field projection lenses, and are excellent for slide projection in large lecture halls.

This is a 150mm 5,6 Navitar in a Copal 0 shutter, so what is this? Any ideas?

I had a Navitar 150mm lens which was bundled with my Arca-Swiss 5x4" camera when I bought it. I found it was a bit limited with 5x4" - it had very little coverage, and could vignette with almost the slightest of movement. The overall quality wasn't too bad, but my new Rodenstock lenses are in a different league...
