Thanks for your responses. At the risk of returning the thread to the original topic 🙂, I thought I'd clear the mystery up, at least a little bit.
Turns out the customer DOES have a 485. But clearly, his 485 does NOT have the original cord wrap. It appears that at some time in the past, they were replaced with the feet that I shared in the photo album. If you'll look, you'll see that there's a notch cut out of one side of the foot. That apparently was done to make the foot fit onto the scope and avoid interference with the housing protrusion. I added a photo of the foot installed to the album https://groups.io/g/TekScopes/album?id=250966.
So, mystery partially solved. I have some idle curiosity about where the foot came from as it's clearly not a 454, 465, or 475 foot (I know those by sight). But I can live with it. One day I'll come across one and the light bulb may (or may not) light up.

I think I've heard those referred to as "Mickey Mouse" connectors.
