Thats a 70's 'winn' stem/japanese. May even be .888 size. The non recessed stem bolt is a give away to 70's and pre. Stem shifter recess

I can't seem to find any mention elsewhere. Unusual but not desirable?

Just old fashioned-they replaced later with a recessed allen bolt/japanese. Functions as it should-desire is in the eye of the beholder I guess.
