Default Contax or Kiev cassette

An elderly Leica came to me yesterday with an incompatible cassette sitting in it. It's either a Contax or a Kiev. Its metal parts are fully functional but I suspect the (plastic) spool may not be either original or a good fit. The felt circles look OK.

If anyone could do with this, just pm me.

Oops, if anyone thinks I'm including the elderly Leica, sorry.

The Zeiss Ikon Contax cassettes that I have don't have any felt seals. And they have a metal spool. And those from Leitz that I also have are similar.

If Nick doesn't mind, I think the moderators can get rid of this thread.

I did what I should have done first and checked Leica spools in the cassette for fit. They fit perfectly and the plastic cassette clearly won't be light-proof. Pity, as it has a neat one-way feed.
