As a first check:
do examine the position of the mirror, its angle. Don't change it.

But, make a test with a film: on a tripod or on a firm place under the camera, measure several distances from the film plane with a manual meter - 1,5 - 2 - 2,5 - 3 - 5m - and always use the signs on the lens for the first shot, for the 2nd shot use what the viewfinder gives you.

I.E: on each distance, make one shot with manual metering and use signs on the lens barrel, then the 2nd shot use the pentaprism focusing.

Use f/2 or the largest opening.

Then you'll be able to evaluate whether the body (or mirror) is calibrated badly, or the lens.

Afterwards, you can decide the following:

IF this body still has a small black screw, like on Zenits M42, on the side or little bit under the mirror on one side. This screw serves for calibration of the focus in the camera, and changes angle of the mirror. Do please lubricate it before, with WD-40 or similar lubing liquid.

The conclusion: for example, if you manually measure 2M with a meter, you have to put 2M on the lens, and then intervene on the tiny black screw in order to bring it into focus in the viewfinder. Of course, the infinity as a parametre can be of help, but focusing on short distances is much more important.

Surely it was known a RF top was something rare even in the early days of camera collecting.

Well, around the millennium the value of USSR FRs was not much in the FSU-countries. It was easy to buy them for 20 euros in Estonia. And none of the sellers (pawn shops, antique shops etc) knew if one version was more valuable. If I would only have known how the value will grow, I would have bought them all...

yeah it was a pawn shop sales receipt, this isn't a receipt for a brand new item unless someone brought it brand new to pawn shop.

To be more precise (just a bit!), the aperture scale changed near the end of the 1f, 1st version, s/n c. 280000/300000, so probably in 1951.
Alfa is right,; a correct lens would be better for collection (if not to shoot!).
