Yes, exactly like the second, without the all-over orange. I assume your first photo is of period originals, and the second later items sold for the aftermarket, in which case mine are the latter. The dampers are upside-down in the photos, but in the top one I can just see the spacer installed on the lower (at the top in the photo) pin, beneath the first plated cup washer. In the second photo, I think I can see one loose in the bag towards the top left of the photo, sideways on.
Photo of my spacers attached.
From your photo, Comp, it looks as though they should be installed between the rubber bushes and the damper body. I thought this would further reduce the damper travel, but I guess they must be there for a reason. Maybe to give a better base for the cup washer to sit against, therefore bevelled to sit over the pin-to-body weld.
