Subject: [CR]Italian Masi frames vs US Masi frames

A question I have regarding the differences between Italian and US frames. Are there any differences in manufacturing details that would identify a Masi as either US or Italian? There have been many Masi frames/bikes offered for sale lately, that I would like to have some idea of a definitive way to tell one from the other. I know this could turn out to be a rather broad question, but I was wondering how to id specific frames and time periods.

thanks
