The wheel qr lever on the Amerio's CC system is thinner and narrower than all the other Campy skewers I have; 60's through 80's. It and the front lever have the open letter "C" and although missing 3 out of 4 bolts, are pre-D ring. The qr cam housings are more dome-shaped and less cylindrical than later skewers. To see similar lugs to the Amerio, look at the oldest two Galmozzi bikes on the CR site. And, with the right calipers, those Bartali brake levers would look just right on it!
