Just a guess here, but it looks like parts may have been removed from a band clamp-on type shifter, to be used on braze-ons. Perhaps mid 70's?

They have the cable housing stop and the flat friction plate so I think that means late 60s to mid 70s. The cable housing stop disappeared about then and they went to a domed friction plate and different lever style in the early 80s.

The first Gran Sport had black back plates and screws rather D Rings, probably into the 60s.

Could this be a mish mash of parts? from different generations?

This is what I think too. I have a set mounted to the band clamp that look the same. I bought them from Colley Avenue Bike Shop in Norfolk VA in 1977.
