An odd set of filter-threaded lenses for a 1979-ish Minolta Hi-Matic AF. Wide-Angle and Telephoto, but meant for a camera with a tiny lens in the center, so they will probably have bad edge vignetting and should result in some very interesting photos. I had to try them out for $5. A step-down adapter to fit them on my main lenses is $7 at Adorama.

Interesting Note: If you compare this machine’s serial number to the other 440T, you’ll see that “Thunderbird I” (A8823345) rolled off the line in January 1968, and 37,088 machines and one month later, this one rolled off the line in February of 1968 (B8860433). That’s at least 37,000 machines in a month that Brother churned out in 1968. That’s almost half a million machines a year.
