    Looks like a NR that somebody milled. The very early SR was a 2-bolt style, but the flutes were shaped differently than that one.

    I think I agree that this is home or frame builder fluting. I don't think Campi would cut through their own name. also i thought the factory fluting had an angle or bevel to the ends rather than a steep cut.

    Definately an NR with pantograph fluting. In fact, if there's a "B" on the front it's a Bianchi panto post.

    The easiest way to distinguish between the first generation Super Record and a Nuovo Record seatpost with fluting:

    SR - bottom cradle pivot drilled all the way through
    NR - solid

    SR - bottom cradles alloy
    NR - steel

    SR - fluting fades to more of a point - just like the later SR one-bolt posts
    NR - rounded-end fluting

    SR - thinner steel top clamps
    NR - thicker

    SR - post wall thickness is thinner, too

    Hope that clears it up for you (a Bianchi panto NR post is still worth some big bucks, and has a cool factor for sure).

    It does look like a Bianchi milled Record Seat Post.

    Nuovo Record post with 3rd-party milling. A first-gen, fluted, two-bolt Super Record would look like this:

    To make sure you have a nuovo record seat post, you can always proceed as follows:

    1. Acquire small amount of explosive
    2. Insert explosive into the seatpost through the opening at the bottom
    3. Step away
    4. Detonate
    5. If there still is a seat post, it's definetly NR

    But the Super Record first-gen posts would hold up to that test as well.

    The giveaway that the fluting is not original is that it runs through the engraved text on the back of the post.
