Subject: [CR]Cinelli Seatpost Binder - Early Edition?

I think we are all familiar with the classic 3 piece Cinelli seatpost binder bolt. 2 allen bolts that screw into a center, 5 sided, tapered nut or receptacle or whatever you call that thingy in the middle, but was there an earlier rendition?. I acquired a mid 60's Cinelli track frame last summer that had a 2 piece seatpost binder. The bolt is about 6mm X 37mm with a 12 spline hollow headed head with a shoulder washer built in. The nut is pretty standard looking 8mm with a shoulder washer. Anyone ever seen something like this on an early Cinelli? I don't have image hosting but I can e-mail an image if anyone wants a look. Thanks
