Picked this up over the weekend for $7. (Actually it was a bag of old asst MF lenses for $7). It's a Nikon F mount, f/2.8, and by comparing it's AOV, I've been able to determine it's a 28mm. It came with a Vivitar 2x converter, but it doesn't match other Vivitar 28mm's I can find. So far the closest I can find (perusing through ebay) is Soligar, but even that is different. The scalloped focus ring is similar to the Nikkor-H, but it certainly isn't one of those. The indexing guide (don't know the proper name for it) looks funky, and may be a homemade job. I know back in the day there were a gajillion third party lens manufacturers, but it would be nice to know.

Anyone recognize it, or have an idea? What you see is what I got. Thanks!
