Campy Deltas... Croce or Record?

Hey all..

I just won these Deltas on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...7260%26fvi%3D1

The seller doesn't know and there are no pictures of the backside to indicate to me whether they are Croce or Record.

Can anybody tell from these pics if they're Record and perhaps what generation?

Thanks Citoyen.. Is the top cable stop the main indicator?

55Rad: I saw that page but it seems even they have the Records & Croce a bit mixed up (the Faggin bike in the Record Delta photo section seems to have Croce instead... based on the cable-stop).

I think on the Croces the mechanism is exposed on the back.

Yes. Citoyen is correct. The shape of the cable stop with the black rings is the obvious indicator. I believe the Croce cable stop was only made in a more conical shape.
