Since she took over my finances I'm never truly broke I just don't have access to money! And She never spends any of it either!

The bad part as Roy knows is the lens of the Supertakumars with age will yellow somewhat and require UV Rays to bring them back.
It's my understanding that radioactive thorium was added to the glass with some of these lenses, and it will not only register on a Geiger counter, but thorium glass has a tendency to turn amber, then brown over time. That's probably what you're seeing with some of them.
