i bought a pair of these brakes from a member of the list to put on my super sport that is fully equipped with three decades of dura ace components (and campagnolo wheels and shifters). they certainly can't be any later than the late 70's. the finish isn't all that great, but after sanding and polishing them by hand they are very handsome. mechanically they are quite wonderful, with brass (bronze?) bushings and fairly intricate nylon and rubber seals. i'm very fond of them.
