I need help identifying an unlabeled 2M collinear vertical that was once in use as a 2M amateur antenna.

A friend has asked me to install a 2M base collinear vertical he's had in storage for years. It is about 8' long, made of white fiberglass, about 5/8" dia at the bottom, about 1/4" dia at the top, has a 3/8" threaded base (which appears only to be a mechanical mounting point), and has a RG-58 size coaxial pigtail emerging about 4" above the bottom of the fiberglass body. There is a single machine screw going into the body about 1/3 of the way above the bottom.

If there was a label (perhaps on the metal bottom end) it is long gone.

From this description, would you be able to help me identify it? That will help me determine what's needed to put it back in service (beyond splicing and covering the badly cracked coax pigtail which was cut off and has only about 4" exposed.)

Thanks very much for any ideas,
