Based on a some off-list emails I just received from well-informed listers, it appears that the 4-leaf-clover is indeed the stamping of the the Union-Berg (or Berg-Union?) spokes. So, they are not Colnago spokes.

Wow, so there is something that Ernesto didn't put his symbol on!

A couple of other people with experience wrote to add that these spokes are chromed and prone to breakage.

Thanks to all who responded.

I've never seen spokes like these before and I'm wondering if they are in fact Colnago branded spokes, or if the stamp is a 4 leaf clover (it's hard to tell), representing some other brand. Does anyone know?
