John Crump asks "What IS the difference between a Campag?Gran Sport front gear and a Valentino?..."

Steven Maasland posted this to CR in responding to Amir about differentiating the two:

Amir: "...This morning I dug out of the bin a small box with two Campy Gran Sport Front Derailleurs. http://www.flickr.com/photos/8210984@N06/3200443623/in/photostream/ ..."

Steven: "...Please be advised that the one on the left in the photo is indeed a Gran Sport derailleur, while the other one on the right is a less sought after Valentino...."

You can see two key differences clearly: the set bolt for the derailleur cage; the shape of the derailleur body where the pushrod comes out.
