I'll have a look at mine and see which type they are. I'm pretty sure mine have the metal chrome surrounds. Here in the UK all the lenses I have seen don't have the screws visible in the lens, they are fastened from behind by the metal surround. I have a small crack in one of my reflectors so wanted to replace the lens with the correct type.
Cheers

These are the other type I think the European Capris have these, I accidentally ordered these from the guy and had to return them, but these had all the lettering on them, think it even says made in England

Yes those are the ones I can get here, in fact I bought a few then realized they were different to the SA ones.
