Unknown teleconverter

Hello people,
I recently found teleconverter among the inherited Pentax equipment (my wife's grandfather was avid Pentax shooter).
Unfortunately, it won't fit on Pentax and I would like to find out for what camera type it is intended for. Google returned only German webpages which I don't understand.
The name is: WEP AUTO KINOTELEX 2X WMC.
Anybody familiar with this?

OK, I'll post the picture but it may take some time since it will be the first one for me.

I like this picture posting stuff.
Haven't tried it for so long because photo hosting sites seemed to cumbersome registering to. It was not, it was just me being lazy!

I thought that the pictures themselves will be posted...
Let's try something else...

I tried img tags but nothing hapenned. FAQ does not explain picture posting in detail. What exact sintax did you use?
Thank you.

Yep, it looks like it's Minolta. I have X700 somewhere I'll try it out.
Thanks MrApollinax

As stated already, it is a Minolta mount. If you notice it has two coupling prongs which make it the later MD mount. It will also work on the MC mount cameras, such as the SRT series.
