It looks the same as other superspeeds. If an end cap is missing it is easy to tell because you will see the much darker solder that held it on. You can remove the other cap with a little heat and clean up the solder so both sides so they match.

And welcome to the Shave Nook!

If it is missing the end caps, it will look like this.

Well, there is also the British or English Red Tip Super Speed which has pointed end caps...a far rarer object, and much sought after.
