When I look at the lens cap very closely, I see traces of wear on the outside, not on the inside. That gives me the certainty that the lens cap belongs to the Cooke and Perkins lens hood. Unbelievable. The Cooke and Perkins lens hood is in itself quite rare.

Finally back together again! After so many years.

Hello Erik,
There are 2 versions of this hood by C&P.
One version is for the older aperture scale of 3.5, 4.5, 6.3, 9, 12.5, 18.
the other is for the current 3.5, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, 22. aperture scale.
