I have dated 1951 Reynolds drop bars that are 23.8 and require a shim to fit old GB Hidminium bars. I suspect this was always a thing.

Brass shim stock will work in most any application as will aluminum. I make sure to have any gap or overlap centred in the opening in the stem to prevent stress risers
