I actually found one that looks like yours !
I also bought an old J-8 (with a red Π symbol).
I'll certainly post a comparison in a few weeks


Any advice on how to clean these old aluminum barrels ? I've seen that yours looks shiny.

I simply used metal polish. The "wadding" type sold for motorcycles is convenient and works in seconds with minimal effort. Use sparingly and only on all-alloy lenses with engraved lettering.
