Does anyone know anything about the codes used to say which camera a TX mount will fit?

 

My reason for asking is that I bought a TX lens without a mount, vaguely remembering that I had a TX mount in my spares box. The trouble is that it turns out that the mount is marked SL, and I have no idea what it fits. I've tried QBM for Rolleiflex SL 35 and it isn't that, and it doesn't seem to be any of the more common makes.

 

Anyone know, or have a list of the mount identification codes? Or want to sell me a TX mount for something useful?

Thanks! I think this one must be first generation, there are no numbers, just the letters. I'm now about 99% sure that it's for Leicaflex SL; the flange focal distance for that is 47mm, Canon Eos is 44mm, and when I tried holding it in front of the canon it focused to infinity at about 3mm from the body. I'll try to take some test pictures with a bit of card to space it properly, then sell it on with a promise to take it back if it doesn't fit.

The latest on this, unfortunately, is that it's definitely Leicaflex - and incomplete! One of the metal parts that links to the camera mechanism is missing, looks like it has been unscrewed. So not really sellable, except possibly for spare parts or something.
