Having bought an original release Vixen LV eyepiece, these all have the big stylised "V" winged with 2 speed-type symbols each side logo, same as the 30mm I posted about above.
Later Vixens, including the LVW range, which were made in Japan, returned to the single circle V, which some products, such as their Moon filter still have.
However my NLVW 30mm and NLV 50mm do not carry the circle V or Japan on them anywhere.
Do the Vixen NPL, SLV, SSW or HR ranges?
Switching to refractors, are there different markings and labellings between the scopes made in Japan compared to China. 2 respective examples would be the A80M and A80MF achromats. The former is more expensive.
Ditto for Opticron binoculars where production moved from Japan to China.
