I have now checked my lug catalogues and exactly this same pattern is listed both in the Nervex list and the Prugnat list - I was careless in calling them Nervex Pro, David is quite right that they are one of the patterns of Nervex Legere lug. Prugnat simply uses a number. The Nervex Pro pattern is also included in the Prugnat catalogue I have. I will add the correction to my auction.
