Interesting info, I had no idea of an engraved set having 2 springs. Is the Wheel goods catalog on line? I cannot pull the pictures up. Also where do the non stickered red lettered silk screened 999 weinmanns fit into this, I have found them on 1950-60's Allegros.

> According to an old Wheel Goods Catalog, the correct brakes for a '64 bike would be an engraved version with 2 springs. It is pictured in the 2nd photo here:

> Note that the '62-64 version used 2 springs, while the pre-'62 version used only 1 spring. After '64, Weinmann stopped engraving their name on the arms and used "Weinman 999" stickers.
> One note, Schwinn had a reputation for buying parts in large quantity. So, a Paramount might have older components than its model year.
