Anyone Know what Mic this is ?

Anyone recognize this mic, it was used a lot on the BBC's 'Top of The Pops' in the early 70's.
My first thoughts were a AKG D160E but all the windshields I have seen with the 160 have a metal band in the center, whereas the one in the picture has the band lower down the windshield, also the stand adapter in the photo is attached to the end of the mic, it looks almost as though it is attached in some way to the xlr plug. (BBC mod perhaps ?)
