Leupold VX-1 scopes What's in the box?

I have a new in sealed box 2-7 rimfire special that I want to keep that way until either I have a need for it, or I sell it.
Did these come with a bikini cover?

There's two generations of VX-1 ( although I think the Rimfire Special may have only been in gen 2)and I'm not at all sure that the covers in the box stayed the same throughout production, If you post your part # and an estimate of the scope's age I'll check my boxes.

I have a VX1 2x7 33mm and a VX1 3x9 40mm and they both came with factory bikini lens covers. Freedom series 2x7 and 3x9 Rimfire I bought later did not.

Thank you both for your responses. I'm sure all VX 1 scopes came with the same items.
Mine is product #113871. If I ever open the box, I'd want to pick the bikini on a similar, slightly older VX I scope, and put the Alumina flip covers from it, on the VX 1.

By "Bikini" cover do you mean a neoprene wetsuit type cover that stretches over the entire scope? From memory that's what I think I got, I'll go look after I finish my coffe.

OK a late model 2-7x28 came with an all rubber piece that has two rubber cups connected by a rubber band. That's not the one I was thinking of. I looked it up and Uncle Mikes does in fact market it as a Bikini cover, although that's not what comes to my mind when I hear "Bikini", my mind is like that though.
