Freehub identification

I have removed a 9 speed freehub body from a Dura Ace hub. The only markings on it are the letters YH. I thought this strange as Shimano parts usually have specific part numbers. Is this a Shimano part or a generic freehub?+

I don't remember seeing part numbers on freehub bodies before, on hub shells yes. The YH is likely a date code. Andy

Dura Ace freehub bodies from that period are Ti so if it is non-magnetic you have the right one.
