Help idnetify Mystery Campagnolo front derailleur

First let me say I'm not fishing for buyers nor do I think this is worth much, but i posted this derailleur
on ebay and I don;t know what it is. It was working on an old touring bike triple but it has no markings.
If anyone knows off hand, let me know so I can post it on the site.
thanks!

Well,certainly a newer model (ie - post SR/NR type, does not look like a 980 or gran sport either). So that opens up the whole Record/Athena/Chorus/etc etc field of parts!

Croce d'Aune is my guess.

not c-record. looks an aweful lot like triomphe, but the clamp is different. I think the CdA, chrous or other early 90s group is probably where it falls.

CdA or Chorus -- if there's a difference between the 2, I can't tell it.

But here's a mystery Campy triple derailleur of the same era:



I can't find it in any of the catalogs. Looks a lot like some of the MTB derailleurs in the early 90's, but the braze on mount doesn't makes sense. Tandem derailleur? Just not in the catalogs? Sorry for the awesome picture quality. I entirely forgot I had the thing until this thread, and can't take a better pic until I get home.

What would that post size relate to. it fit on a vintage trek so I assumed it was standard.

I thought the 1992 Chorus has an adjustable band. But didn't pre-92.

28.5mm sounds like something in the margin of error when measuring a standard 28.6mm clamp-on derailleur.

You're right! I didn't notice that. I only have the '87 and '92 catalogs to view ATM so it must fall somewhere between.

Thanks all! Close enough. 87-92 Chorus sounds right.
