Default thorens 160 - mystery cartridge

Just picked up a Thorens TD-160 with tp16 arm at a church flea market, great find!

Could use a new belt, but other than that it looks/works great.

However, the cartridge has NO markings/writing/ident on it

I'm guessing that maybe the 160 came with a "standard" cartridge from Thorens, but don't know - and would like to find out.

I've attached a shot of the cartridge - satin black with gloss black plastic

Any ideas? Would like to get a stylus for it, if it's a decent cartridge.

Inquiring minds want to know

Have you tried to remove it from the headshell?Sometimes there are some clues at the back of the cartridge.Thorens of that time were often using ELAC cartridges.Still I 'm not 100% sure.
