It is my OPINION that the flat bladed QRs with conical end nuts were limited to the 5 speed / 120mm OLD which is 5 speed.

Best I can determine from your description the end nut with "2 coin edge bands" is a Tipo part. All record end nuts will have a chrome loop. The later model record end nut will not be conical, but slightly domed on the end to account for CPSC regulations.
