Prugnat and not Nervex - The pro's from the 50's through to 80's seem to all have a short 'Y' shaped tang on the front, and Prugnat the long version as seen here.... plus the Nervex shape to the top tube portion of the lug is totally different. Also not to be confused with the many other Nervex series produced.

Flame away.
