sharkey I have been on all kinds of chainsaw sites for years now and you're the first person that has responded knowing what a banana tip is.
Yes that is a banana tip but was replaced by the "Double Guard" tip that came out a few years later.  Now a days the Double Guard is no longer on a Power Match bar, its now just a one piece  laminated piece of crap.

The Oregon Selector guide still list some Power Match Double Guard bars, but of course not the "banana tip".

I never heard them called them banana tip down here. I call them hog nose bars.   

I have oregon 20" 16" for the JD and had new oem hognose bars in 10" 12" 14" 16' in A041 for top handle poulans.

The Guard Tip [banana nose] came out in 1978, I tested one of the originals too. They were only in the 3 rivet medium contour and slimline contour Oregon bars. The one in my photo was the only banana nose on the PowerMatch bar ever, never was put into production.
Stihl got into hot water over a article they published in Chainsaw Age magazine back in the early 1980s. They stated with a photo that if the banana nose bar was put on the saw upside down kickback would increase greatly. Of course that never was the issue and a few months later Stihl put in another article and apologized and said being put on upside down would not increase kickback energy.

I'll try and dig those two articles up and post them here later.

I believe your right SawTroll Oregon may still list some of the PowerMatch bars with Double Guard tips in some parts of the world , but the consumer laminated ones have basically replaced it.

Yep you got in that photo a Guard Tip on a slimeline contour bar. The slimeline which has 3 rivets on a "stepped joint" replaced the medium contour bar around 1981. The medium contour bar was wider in the belly and had a "1/4 moon joint". I think I e-mailed you a picture of that bar from one of my race bars a while back.

I looked it up on the Canadian site, since you live in Canada. The few exemples I looked up listed them in .050 only, so they may well be on their way out of the assortment........
