    I have an unused Optinus 00 i this carton: Screenshot_20210511_133305.jpg
    The pump has rubber O-ring, not leather. Anyone who knows the period of production? The 80s?

    Thanks! Just as I thought. When did Optimus stop making 00?

    The 00 I bought new from Optimus USA in the '80s also has an o-ring pump.
