Yes, the four hole "Record Front Changer" is shown in the 18 page Campagnolo catalog supplement that came out in 1979. Also the single bolt "Nuovo Super Record Seat Pin" is shown; the only part with the NSR tag that I know of.

Incidentally, the Campagnolo Timeline has just been updated and has the answers to most of the Campagnolo questions asked recently. It can be seen at http://www.velo-retro.com

Again, I invite the members of the list to read over the Timeline and submit corrections or additions.
