Minolta ERC Can You Identify?

Looks like an ERC for a 1950s/early 1960s RF, but which one?





Thank you

update:

Meanwhile I found out the ERC in question is too small for a Canon P.

Ideas anyone?

This reminds me how pretty the original 'minolta' logo was, such a shame they changed it.

There's even a Minolta fan site where you can download the genuine font!
(All the glyphs apart from minolta are constructed, of course.)
