I just sold a 2.8A lenshood.  As you note, it was marked only with the F&H
logo and "2.8A" -- at that time, F&H only sold "Bayonet" accessories and
"2.8A" accessories.  It was not until the advent of the later 3.5C that the
term "Bayonet II" was adopted  I have always understood that the 2.8A used
what later came to be known as the Bayonet II mounting, but canted, as the
Baby Grey Bayonet I hoods are canted from those used on Rolleiflex and
Rollecord cameras.
