The internal races are smaller and the O.D. of the lug is also slightly larger, the wall containing the race being slightly thicker. It is a fact. Those frames (that I have verified, there may be other years) were made between 1970 and 1972, the serial number on the right side of the lug being 17x with the other three digits on the left side of the seat lug. The frames can also be identified as having a diamond shaped reinforcement on the brake bridge.
