Cool factoid! This new information to me.
Those seatposts, particularly if 27.2 mm in size and in excellent or better condition, may possibly be very dangerous to use. You may want to send them to me, postage paid, and I will dispose of them properly for you. Certainly wouldn't want you to be using anything old that might fail! ;-)
Folks, please add this component to my standing offer to recycle those old 175mm Record Strada cranksets at no charge. Any diameter is acceptable. I have decided to do this because "it's the right thing to do!" Sometimes, we just have to make sacrifices for our beloved hobby....

P.S. from what you're saying, I'd wager that the longer flutes are older. I've never seen one with the shorter flutes. The two that I have right now both have flutes that measure 7.5cm. - I just now checked 'em.
