The hinges in the last picture you show seems to be the right ones.
Interesting hints. I assume, the manufacturer of both hinge versions must actually be the same. Perhaps you call NAD and ask there (for calling by telephone my english is too bad). Linn ltd. will not tell us this name, because the LP-12 is still in currently production and not obsolete.
Thank you very much for your efforts.

Brand name for Linn's 2-F-037-H still want to know.
This part isn't custom made, because several other manufacturers like Thorens use this part.

I "repaired" mine a few years ago. Guess this will laster longer than originally.

Note that the spring has cracked off the entire backside. In fact I made the two holes using the nail itself as a drill. So it fits perfectly with no tendency to slip out. And no way the spring will ever work through the nail as it did with the plastic.

Nice repair GeorgK. Back in 2007 I repaired a pair of Linn hinges. I had some used, dull 3/32" drill bits I cut the shanks (the smooth part) off of. I had some old black 3.5" floppy disks I cut up and glued to the hinge to cover the broken area.

Default Simple Fix

My Sony turntable (PS-LX3) has the same hinges. I discovered a fairly simple fix for you do-it-yourselfers. Drill a hole on each side of the plastic portion just above the pin and insert an additional pin that retains the spring.

(Ignore the hole I drilled in the center of the hinge, that was a fix that was unsuccessful)

There is more information on the problem at the following URLs:
