missing headset cap - which one do I need?

I just bought a used 2005 stumpjumper frame that came with the headset cups installed and the bearings but the cap for the top is missing.

Does anyone know what the stock headset would be on this bike and can I buy just the top cap? I have only found complete headsets.

The bearing is recessed about 3/32" below the lip of the cup.

The specialized website just says:
1 1/8 Threadless, 3x sealed, black alloy cups, cartridge bearings, ultralight alloy top cap and bolt

If a maker's name and model number aren't engraved on the cup,s you will have to contact Specialized for the details. I expect you will wind up replacing the entire headset as parts usually aren't available, particularly for generic ones.
