How many triplets non-apochromats?

I've never seen one of these before.
It's a Vixen triplet semi-apochromat. I know about Takahashi triplet semi-apochromats before they got the flourite lenses. The Vixen is interesting because it looks much newer with the aluminium tripod. Made me wonder who else made triplets that aren't quite apos?

If it is in nice shape I'd definitely give 30,000 yen for it. Plus shipping! Make sure the seller isolates that counterweight.

I was going by the price. I couldn't tell if that was a BIN or not.
I already have one of those cases. It came with the telescope pictured just to the left of the SA70S in the 1981 Vixen catalog This one is a bit later judging by the lock levers on the New Polaris mount. The first gen New Polaris has those screw in knurled rods.
