    I have an new old stock original Scubapro Mk5 DIN adaptor still in its little clear plastic baggie with instructions, max. psi, etc. Had it for decades. It looks nothing like the Trident pictured here. It's threaded on both ends, one side to seat in the 1st stage, the other in an older shallow DIN cylinder valve.

    The DIN parts on mine (MK5 ?) do not look like the file details....

    The bottom of that regulator doesn't look like a Scubapro Mk-5. That curve shape is different than a Mk-5.

    I think @couv would like me to talk about the original Mk-1. That Mk-1 (that @Greg Torok is showing) was the second version. It actually came out in 1964 as the Mk-5.

    We have talked about the original Mk-1 in other threads. I will do a search and show it here.

    The original Mk-1 had what was supposed to be an 100% recall, but I actually have one of the few regulators that were not destroyed.

    The original Mk-1 is shown in the 1964 and 1965 Scubapro catalog, but it is not a real picture of the regulator. It is more of a artistic drawing.

    The single port regulator that @Greg Torok is showing was shown in the 1965 catalog as the original Mk-5. I don't have a 1966 catalog, but in the 1967 catalog that regulator became the Mk-1 and the new Mk-5 first showed up with a two port LP swivel. The original Mk-1 had disappeared at that point.

    That curve at the top of the body looks like an Oceanic Mk5 clone. The lightly textured plastic saddle is also a match for Oceanic.
    The swivel cap may have 4 LP ports on a 6 sided cap, with a pair of ports on each side and a blank in between each pair?

    That's the one!

    Tried to edit the original title to reflect this, but can't find a way.
