The Super Record ones look like normal SR shifters except the barrel is wider. You can see pics of them here - - Component: Campagnolo Super Record Retro-Friction Note the last pic...the later model retrofrictions look like that on the inside as well - both shifters - so if it doesn't look like that inside then it's not a retrofriction. It's impossible to tell the 2 versions in my photo apart from the non-retrofriction models just from looking at the outside.

And here is how they are assembled....

I'd have sworn I have seen versions marked 'Mavic' but a quick search didn't find any so you may well be right.
