Could the CM be Cinelli Milano, and the marking done for some oem who didn't want the cinelli name? Or are they very different from normal bivalents so they couldn't be from Cinelli.

I have been preparing some things for le cirque and I have a question regarding another oddball part. I have a hub that is somwhat like a Cinelli Bivalent hub in that the freewheel remains attached to the frame when you remove the hub. On the hub it says Brevettato CM. Nothing more. I have tried to dig up the patent that this marking refers to but have come up blank. Is anybody perhaps a bit more adept at patent searches that can come up with something? It could perhaps have been patented only in Italy. Perhaps Cino 'borrowed' the idea for 'his' bivalent hubs?
