The Super Record f. der. was not available until the early '80s. So until that time, the SR gruppos included the Record f. der. (all silver). While we all use the "NR" title to describe the 3 hole silver f. der., technically it is the "Record " model. So, the black arms designate it as a SR. Silver arms is a Record (aka NR). The SR and Record, that have 3 holes in the cage, are identical except for the arm color.
