    That's a cine lens. most likely a C mount. TTH separated off Cooke Optics as a new companya few years ago and no longer make lenses. However Cooke Optics are still a leading supplier of high end cine lenses and very ocassionally produce some large format camera lenses.

    It's probably a 1950's or 60's lens and if you look on ebay sellers often ask quite high prices but it's value is going to depend on the condition and the exact model and what someone is prepared to pay.
