    If it is pre-AI it was likely made before 1977.

    Here is an excellent manual focus genuine Nikkor zoom lens, the 80 -200 f/4 AI-S.You want an AI or Ai-s era lens at least...pay no more than $40 for a non-Nikon lens in this category.

    There is also a 70-210 straight f/4. KEN Rockwell's website has reviews of these older lenses. Make sure not to overpay for this lens. For example in the summer of 2017 I bought a Tokina of the same specification 70-210 F4 to F 5.6 for about $19.95 at a pawn shop that has a fairly large used photo equipment section.

    The lens you are looking at is at least 25 years old so you should not pay too much
