Tokina 28mm f2.8 wide-auto - need help finding the correct mount adapter (not m42)


So yesterday I found this later edition of the Tokina 28mm f2.8 wide auto lens and I planned on finding the right adapter to use it on my sony A5000.
However, I tried determine what type of mount this copy of the Tokina has, but i failed. Most copies seem to have a M42 mount, which this one clearly is does not have. In addition, the lens doesn't fit on any of the adapters I already own (L39, MD, PK, OM, M42).

Please see attached photo's of the lens. I also added a photo of the lens cap which has the letters CFX or AFX engraved in it (the C and A are engraved on top of eachother), this seems to be the original cap for the mount side of the lens.

Does someone recognize this mount? You would be my hero.

Yep..."CA" on the back is the giveaway along with the appearance and it being "breach-lock" design. It should be adaptable to your Sony. BTW...It appears to be in very nice shape. Congratulations!
