Campagnolo casette identification

Can anyone identify a Campagnolo cassette please?

Just got a new (2015 model) Bianchi Intenso with a 13-26 10-speed cassette that has titanium spacers throughout, instead of the plastic ones I've previously seen on Centaur and Veloce. Does anyone know what series cassette this might be? There is no chrome plating on any of the cogs, just nickel finish and all 10 are individual cogs (I think only Shimano fix the bigger cogs together anyway?). The whole cassette looks a step up from the Centaur ones I've had.

The bike didn't come from an official Bianchi dealer and wasn't quite 'as described' - it was listed online as 12-27 Centaur, but the wheels were actually twice the price of the ones listed (swings and roundabouts). I'm not entirely disappointed with the gear ratios (although I might order a 12 cog), but I'm just curious to know what the cassette actually is... especially if I order a 12 cog to match (I know any 10 speed cog will do, of course).

All loose cogs? Then almost certainly Veloce. I can only think of one other option: Centaur 10-speed cassettes were downgraded one year (2009?) by using all loose cogs. But normally, all Campy cassettes from Centaur upwards have at least 2 of the largest cogs attached by an alu carrier. The more expensive the cassette, the more cogs are attached together by carriers.

BTW: the spacers are not titanium.
