I think I can answer my own question!
I find that I already have some of these sockets and they are actually made in Japan and are very well constructed. The ones I have are actually these which are marked C-004
I think what you have there is a Chinese made Oyaide fake. I would not be surprised if it was brass under the plating.
Seems painfully obvious doesn't it.
I agree that it is bootleg. Also agree that it is likely brass(at best, and quite possibly something worse).
Fancy gold and rhodium plating hide inferior base materials.
I have found the base material in most Chinese made RCA's and binding posts to be some sort of silver colored "mystery metal". Possibly pot metal.
But hey! they are gold plated so they must be good.
Freak out...Far out...In out....
Wow Oyaide plugs for only $5!!
What a bargain!!
