The Maillard 700 will usually say that on the label, except it was a foil label like the Normandy Competition, so sometimes the label has come off. Many of the 700s that came as OE on high end Peugeots had the same type and color of foil label, but said: "Trophy Peugeot by Maillard" or something like that - didn't actually say "700" but it was the same hub. Midrange Maillard hubs, like the front hubs often paired with a Helicomatic rear, often had "Maillard" stamped directly on the barrel rather than on a label. The "M" was sometimes highly stylized.
