No, these are factory parts ordered from Nikon.

The Pronea contact blocks were made all in plastic and had an inferior construction compared to the later version. This extends to the build and material of the silver pins as well.

Bjørn remember to put an all plastic short type contact block aside for the 400mm - 600mm dual CPU CU-1 Focusing mount ;) You probably all ready did I guess  ::)

Oops did I miss something Erik - you wish to doctor your own CU-1 adapter? Just say and I'll fix. Anything for you my friend.

Not mine :) But for your adapter, just in case to avoid a shortcut between the contact pins and the rear plate,,, Not sure how long the thin tape will last.

Aha, thanks for the heads-up. I think there are a few of the older type floating around in the scrap bin.

Hi,

I'm considering buying a Nikkor 28mm f2 chipped for aprox. 150 Eur. Is it any way to find out if Dandelion chip is used?

This is not chipped wit a Dandelion.
This is an original CPU contact block, so a Bjørn CPU - screws for the contact block are sticking out a bit, so check if it mounts the camera ok,,,
