Default Pentax 300mm f4 Super Takumar SMC

I have an opportunity to purchase this lens in mint condition for $200.00. Is this a good value?

I believe a Pentax 300mm f4 Super Takumar SMC is a screw mount lens (M42) and KEH is selling the same lens in EX condition for $235.

I had the same lens and used it on my Pentax Spotmatic for years and was extremely pleased with the IQ.

If it is a Super tak it is a screw mount. An M or an A would be P/k mount.
A few photo samples.....http://www.pbase.com/cameras/pentax/300_4_super_takumar
