Mystery Mic - AKG D12/D12E Variant??

Just got an interesting mic that appears to be in the D12e vain, but has a few quirks that are making it hard to pin down. One of the D12/D12e OEM variants, etc?

- The logo badge isn't on the grill, looks to have been on the mount housing but glue dried up and it fell off...
- The grill surround is Metal (not plastic)
- No serial or badge to reference.
- Green wire hot. Black wiring goes to chassis and to XLR.

See pictures...

Any help locking this down would be great! The mic sounds quite nice. I would just like to know for sure what it is!

I saw something like this on ebay recently. Maybe this is the one. Maybe yours is a completely different microphone altogether. The ad said it was an Eastern European answer to the D12/D20. The pictures you post show that it does not have the resonator chamber that a D12/20 would have and that the capsule is also different.

That is all I can say.
