Mystery cable? 6-pin DIN to 23pin DSub?

In among my collection of retro stuff I've come across this cable, and I don't remember acquring it, and I'm not sure what it's for!

One end is a male 6-pin DIN male, as found on C64 disk drive cables, and the other is a 23-pin DSUB female. Both connectors have the Commodore logo stamped into them.

Any ideas?

It certainly looks like one. A Amiga to Commodore 1084 or Phillips CM8833 monitor cable.

Yes, pretty sure that is it as I remember these cables too.

Ah - thanks for that everyone - makes sense!
I never had a 1084 or similar monitor so now I'm wondering how I came to have this cable! Must have been in amongst a box of random Amiga stuff I was given about 15 years ago!

This, I somehow collected a dozen of these cables over the years but only remember purchasing 2 of the CRT's and one I got was a parts unit that eventually got recycled, I only remember getting the 2 cables for the purchased CRT's but I sure can't remember how I got the rest

If your not going to use them it's worth putting them for sale on the EAB Marketplace or Amibay/eBay, I've seen several wanted ads for these cables over the last couple of years.

I had a 1084S so I think I even have an RGB-I cable in my pile.
