The cassette is chrome 12-25. There is a V & W marking on the individual cogs. Most of the cogs also have a XL marking.

There appears to be no model marking outside of the HG Hyperglide on the outside of the cassette. Any info will be much appreciated....

I'm going to guess and say Ultegra(600) or 105. The Dura Ace 8 speed HG's where a champange color.
Here's a pic Dave, does this help !!t-moore

DA 8 speed cogs are not nested together like the Ultegra/105/ect. and are a champage gold color. Ultegra is bright chrome. 105 is a duller nickle/chrome finish.

Good luck.
