Does anyone happen to know the designation and manufacturer of the oxygen masks that are shown in the Gemini 7 crew portrait with astronauts Borman and Lovell wearing the T-38 Talon flight gear?

The oxygen mask soft silicone/rubber face pieces and the plastic hard shells appear to be the USAF MBU-5/P type and the reinforced low pressure hoses appear to be the USN/USMC type for the MS-22001 mask? Possible manufacturers could be Sierra Engineering Co., Scott, The General Tire, and R.E. Darling Co. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
