What cassette do I have?

I've recently acquired through a presumably legal means, a campy cassette. It would be the first campy part that I've ever owned, and I would like to know what groupset it's from. This is the cassette:



And these are the only discernible markings I could find on a quick run-through. Is there some place else on the cassette that could identify exactly what model it is?

OK, you're not throwing that out there without details.

I'm a little confused, what good will it do you if it's the only Campy part you have? Unless you just want to start collecting Campy.
All my Campy cassettes are over 10 years old and I'm way out of touch with Campy these days. But yours looks to be a fairly late model 10spd. I'd guess mid-level, maybe Veloce or Daytona.

If it's 10-speed and the larger cogs are Titanium, as your photo says, then it's a Record cassette. Record cassettes came with the largest few cogs in Ti ($$) and the rest steel or with all of the cogs in Ti ($$$$$$).

This looks like the case. 19t and up are marked as Ti, below that, they aren't.

Might be just the prespective, but that looks worn to hell to me. Putting it in a museum or something? Other thing you can do is weigh the cassette and crossreference it to the weightweenies listing.
