I've always thought that the curved skewers were post CPSC, but I don't have any solid reason for believing this. I have seen some wierd curved QR's that look like a regular straight QR that has been bent over a curved surface. Unlike the normal curved QR's they have the block letter markings as seen on the straight QR's. They are rare and I'd like to find a set. I figured they were early CPSC levers, but maybe they are pre-CPSC.
