Vintage U87 without window??

I can buy a vintage U87 with the battery power but without the small window in the body. The mic label is: Made in Wester Germany Neumann-Microphone U87.
Is a fake, a remake or a different version?

could you check if the tiny meter is inside the u87? it should be there..
the body could have been replaced with a newer one.

The body sleeve might have been replaced at some point, no biggie. Just send the Serial N° to Neumann, they can look it up.
