Please Identify This Mic

Can anyone identify Bruce Springsteen's vocal mic (with 2 color grill) in this video clip. I would like to know what it is. Here's the link:

Thanks!

It's looks like a Telefunken USA Elam 251.

I had looked at that mic, but with only a quick glance at the Telefunken USA website, could not confirm the 2 color windscreen as the photos are all straight on. I just went back to their website and found the silver and black windscreen illustrated in the PDF file of the manual from the original 251.

Never having been near one, I did not know the 251's had a black screen on the rear.

Thank you very much!
