High position for fork eyelets suggests stamped ends.

Ordinary quality headset is an indicator.

Note exposed threads on adjustable bottom bracket cup. Fittings may have been cobbled.

I never thought too much about the fork ends on mine. The rear dropouts on it are forged Campagnolo with derailleur hanger and the fork ends are Campagnolo branded, but in response to your observation, I took a look at the fork ends and, sure enough, stamped, not forged. Looks like Campagnolo 1060 Corsa -- velobase photos match my fork ends.

I'm pretty sure that the frame on mine is db 531. That's what the decal said -- frame forks and stays -- and that's how it was represented to me when I bought it. Also, 27.2 mm post drops right in. I don't remember if the fork had the 531 decals or not -- first repaint was in 86.
