I can make out "AC Close up No.3" on the lens filter shown in your 1st photo. I can't see the brand name. However I believe you are correct.

One can see Pro1D before "AC Close up No.3".
It is Kenko Pro1D AC Close up No.3 made for Japanese market.

This model is also known in Europe and USA as
Hoya Pro1 Digital MC Close up +3

Is it really a 2 element lens?

I can find no reference to that in any of the data for either Hoya or Kenco versions.
It looks too thin to me to be a two element design.

AC stands for Achromat
=> 2 element design?

And Hoya Pro1 is just re-branded Kenko lens.
