Default What Compass is This?

Hi.
Attached are 2 photos of a Danforth Constellation. The silver sticker on the base is very faded, but it looks like it's a Danforth 764?
The base is 3", the mounting ring is approximately 6 1/4". From the bottom of the compass to the underside of the mounting ring is approximately 3 1/4".
This compass is from a 1998 3700 SCR and there doesn't seem to be any information about it on the Internet.
I would like to use the correct Viking in order to avoid the modifications that other members made in order to install a Ritchie.

I think it's the 4-1/2" Gemini. Had to go through Viking's website a couple of times before realizing the height in the dimension graphic included a dotted line for something like an optional shield. Remove that, and the height is likely the 5-1/2" mine is.
