While digging through my big box o' headsets looking for this part for Tom, I noticed a detail on Campy headsets I hadn't noticed before. Some of my threaed cups are stamped 'ENGLAND' on the inside, presumably referring to English threading; some are stamped '1" x 24 TPI ENGLAND', and yet others are stamped '1" x 24 TPI BRITISH'.

I assume these correlate to different dates of manufacture?
