RFT mic connectors?

Hi everyone,

I just bought a RFT (East Germany)omni mic (for around 15$) and now I'm looking for an adapter, so I can listen to it.
Here's a picture of the mic's connector:

I'd be grateful for any and all info that would help me. Ideally: who makes & sells an adapter to XLR?

Also, on old AKG mics with 3-pin DIN connectors: which pin carries what part of the signal?

It's MUCH easier, now that I know that they're called "large, 3-pin Tuchel",
which I didn't
which is the reason why I posted in the 1st place
which, somehow, is the purpose of an online forum
as opposed to "ranting"
which is why I'll stop now
thanks!

follow-up

Got it! It came in the mail today from a guy in Germany who advertises on eBay.de and even does them to order and in large quantities if necessary.
Cost me 28 €. Still cheaper than the 50 to 75 $ I've seen being asked.
And he even sent it by Air mail!
