Criterion Zoom Lens

Does anyone know who made these, and have any opinions (I know, hard to find around here ;-) on the quality of this EP?

Perhaps it was a "Circle-T" product, but I'm uncertain. I bought one ("for nostalgia") a few years ago, but it doesn't get any use....the optics are neither bad nor excellent, and the apparent field of view is indeed limited.
If you really want to use a zoom eyepiece, get a newer one, for more than $30....
I'll check when I get home to see if any manufacturer's sticker remains on mine...

I went back and looked at my Criterion EP collection. Quite a few of them are stamped in the top with a Y. A number are stamped on the barrel with what is closer to the Mercedes emblem. But most of those do not have a Y where the legs are perfectly 120 degrees apart yet the top of the Y is further apart than a normal Y. Not sure what it all means or if they are all from the same manufacturer.
