Kind of a dumb question...

Recently acquired 10mm Switar lens. To those that own them or have experience with them: the minimum focus in feet is marked 8 feet, but the focus ring turns past that. It seems like when I move the focus to infinity, the back-lens is in the right position...

Does my lens need servicing, or is this normal? Should the ring be stopping right at the 8?
