Subject: [CR] Campagnolo Dropout Screws

My Wilier has dropout screws that are one size bigger than my later bikes - this one should be from approx 1950. Was this size the norm back then? When did Campagnolo switch to the lighter weight screws? My other 50's bike, which by the collective reasoning of this group, has been dated to 1958-1962, Italian origin, has the lighter screws. (this frame is for sale, it's big- around 60 CtC if I remember right, and is very interesting, though I have no clue who made it, was thinking either Frejus, or Piero Serrena - and was painted by Billy Rounds last year)

Anyway - What year did campy switch from size 4 to size 3 dropout adjuster screws?
