Both lenses have ID threads. They look different however. The 12 threads are deeper, ie more threads. The 9.5 is shallower and has a tiny space below the last thread. The 12 is about 71.5mm wide inside and the 9.5 is about 85mm. Sorry, I'm using a wooden ruller to measure with. What size and brand lenses, holders, shades etc do I get for these lenses??? Do the serial numbers matter? Thanks.

It looks like 86 & 72mm. Those numbers are based on measuring other filters that I know what are.

No idea. I haven't seen those sizes, did you find any? Maybe use gel behind lens filters (if you can) or find some adapters, which may or may not exist. I know this isn't much help but I didn't want to leave you hanging.

Thanks for the reply. I know some folks use those lenses, one sold receiently on the bay. There are filters in those sizes on ebay but I don't want to pay 25 or more only to find out they don't fit! The local place won't help me. PCE. (I give up on them)
