Did the markings change on the chain ring bolts and crank dust covers from "Patent" to "Brev" at the same time? I assume the change occurred mid-1977 as I have a NIB crank-set marked with the 7 in a diamond that has "Brev" chain rings, chain ring bolts and dust covers, IIRC. However, it's a possibility that someone switched out the "Patent" parts for "Brev" parts. It seems "Patent" rings are difficult to find. I'm still kicking myself for missing this one, a great deal at 26 bucks: URL: Ebay Item # 7187482602

Also, are all the 41 tooth Campy chain rings marked merely <C> as mine is? Are they later vintage? Someone posted a link to a picture of one awhile back but I can't find it now.
