Subject: [CR]Early Dura Ace

I'm gathering parts to restore a bike using circa 1974 vintage Dura Ace componants. I've got the brake calipers, high-flange hub-set, Crane rear derailleur, all of which I have confirmed are of the correct vintage. I've also got an early Dura Ace crankset and front derailleur, but I am not certain they are early enough. Does anyone have a 1973, 1974 or 1975 Shimano catalog with clear photos of the crankset and front derailleur? Or does anyone have advice on how else I can accurately date these parts? Also, does anyone have a set of circa 1974 Dura Ace brake levers you'd consider selling?

Thanks,

David
