They do look Record to me as well. Have a set on my Campy wheels (Record ) ones with the globe on it with scripted Campagnolo written across it and the circular clips around the hub shaft.

Now this would be a good thread if some more campy skewers came in and were identified,
very useful indeed.

I often see them labeled as Super Record skewers. Also, both sets have different fonts.

The one set of levers is pre-CPSC and has been curved after leaving the factory. I wager that if you look carefully, you will see cracks in the chrome. ALL post-CPSC levers have the markings OPEN and CLOSED on them.

You crazy. Both sets say "locked" and "unlocked". It just may be harder to see for some people.

Ah. Thanks. When did this go into effect and what changes did this have on the design of the skewers, post-CPSC?

i have a pair of Nuovo Record skewers/hubs from the early 80s (actually, just one, i'm looking for the other) and it has "locked/unlocked".

actually, i always thought the skewers were the same for SR and NR from say, the early 80s. if this thread continues, i agree it would be good to see examples of different models and designs. I'm looking for a second full set of skewers for my second wheel set and would like to stick with NR (SR?).

Check this Eric,

From Chuck Schmidt's Velo-Retro site:

1978
C.P.S.C. (Consumer Product Safety Commission) mandates changes to NR/SR. Included are a front derailleur lip, 2.5 mm increase in spacing between crank spider and arm to clear the front derailleur lip with corresponding increase in bottom bracket axle length, a curved quick release lever and ball-end added to quick release conical adjuster, dome-shape added to quick release cam lever on brake calipers, plastic covering added to the wheel guides on the brake shoes, and plastic safety-shields added to rear derailleur screws. The word "Patent" is changed to "Brev." on the chainring, chainring bolts and crank dust cap.

P.S. He's got the COOLEST T-Shirts on the Internet too!

Don't you guys know about VELO-BASE? Lots of good info there.
According to Velobase the pair on the right in your second picture are model 1036/1p pista/track skewers.
But we'll see if any experts here call BS on that claim.

And that's not conclusive....read the comments.

Ah, right Jim, thanks
Doing research for others, and I didn't get as far as Drillium Dude's comment.

* Which reminds me! I sent D. Dude one those rare, curved Pista lever handles a while ago. At least, I think it was.....

Yah, "Record" Skewers with the nice wire loop at the nuts.....don't they go for really good money these days??
They look so much nicer than their newer ones, which are dull in comparison.
I have at least three wheelsets that came with those on them and I would not trade them for any other skewers!

Record skewer ID:

Skewer nut: All Record skewers of the vintage varity had 'D' rings.
Skewer nut: Older Record skewers of the vintage variety have 'V' shaped nuts, newer skers of the vintage variety have...IDK...'mushroom'? nuts like in post 1.

Skewer lever: Record levers of the vintage type are held in place with a small nut. If the lever is held in place with a 'c' clip its NOT Record.
