John is correct, the hood for the early version of the 60mm Macro-Elmarit-R is 12514.  I purchased mine used (in user condition) from KEH for under $25; the exact cost escapes me 'cuz it was several years ago.  You can also use E60 filters with this lens, but then you'll have to shade the lens some other way (unless the hood will fit over an E60 filter... hmmm, gotta try that).
