Thread on European Light Stand / Mic Stand

Okay, I have the opportunity to pick up a couple of vintage stands on the cheap. They are aluminum, and I am thinking I can use them as backdrop stands, as they go up to 4m.

Problem is, they were advertised as mic/speaker stands, and I am unsure of one of the threads on top. I've included both images below. The one with the adapter I think I know as normal 5/8 adapter, but the other one wither the longer screw as I have no idea about. I'm not sure I've seen this before on a light stand (certainly nothing that long)...

5/8 adapter (I think)

Longer screw

The seller told me that he had the adapter especially made, which tells me that maybe the other thread is unusual...
So, anyone have any ideas on the second picture?
I don't want to pick the tripods up unless I can be sure that I can get an adapter that will allow me to use the tripods as background stands using something like the Impact crowbar.
