While it is probably not as rare and certainly not as sought after as the first generation SR rear, this bike also has the 4-hole "Nuovo" Record front derailleur. I can't tell if it has the early "break-away" straight-band clamp or the newer pointed band. I've seen four-hole and three-hole cages with both types of band.

I also like the lacing pattern. Note where the valves are not between parallel spokes. This is really a bummer because if you want to reuse these hubs you will need to:

A) Continue to lace your wheels incorrectly B) Lace the wheel correctly, making a new set of marks in the flanges and weakening the material. (I think this used to void Campy's warranty, back when they actually had a warranty. Oh how overly generous they used to be... now they've gone to the other extreme) C) Use a rim with the "other" drilling pattern where the frist hole to the right of the valve goes to the other flange. I think Fiammes may be like this. Depending on the nature of the original screw-up, switching rim brands my be a fix.
