While on the subject, does anyone know anything about Ambrosio Campione del Mondo stems? I bid for and won what I thought was an Ambrosio Champion stem on ebay and recieved a Campione del Mondo stem.

The shape apppears identical, as do the side markings on the extension - Ambrosio=Made in Italy= on one side and Dural Forge et Estampe on the other. The only difference appears to be the name and markings on the top/front of the clamp area.

Was this the same thing made for different markets or at different times, or is it a distinct model?

Thanks in advance for any illumination
