Dia Compe Brake Lever - Which one?

I received this along with a set of Pitbulls. Seller stated that it's an original Tech 7 from the late '80s. It's stamped Dia Compe but also stamped Taiwan not Japan. If it means anything, in the second pic there's a stamping on the lever of 1089. Maybe for Oct. of '89?

It's a Tech 77 smile

And I don't think it's a late 80's one as they are made in Japan - the Tai one's are 90's onwards - although give or take a year or two smile
