Yes, that's definitely the older single coated version.

The one I have was purchased new in May, 1998. It's in a black Copal 0 shutter, and definitely multicoated (bright green reflections).

In addition to the improved coatings, perhaps Yamasaki has improved their quality control in recent years. I have no hard evidence of this, but one would hope quality would improve over time as technology evolves. The sample I have definitely performs quite well (sharpness, contrast, color) within it's limited image circle.
