36h. Nice shape but used.

Ebay prices weren't much help. Couple completed listings for individual hubs around $30 - $45 each.

Don't have any pics of my own, but they look like this one.

I have been surprised at what a pair of these fetch, complete with skewers and in good shape, ebay sillys could pay $100. Deduct for thrashed spoke holes, scratches on skewers, French threading...

I won a pair in a bike race decades ago, I built them up for training, no shop seemed to want them, not even for less than dealer cost at the time, (about $14.!)

During the era when the Tipo hub was current, Campy also made the Nuovo Record hubs. IMO, the NR hubs were the best hubs ever made. The Tipo hubs on the other hand, weren't exceptional at all. The axles were soft and the cones weren't nearly as precisely machined as the NR Campy hubs. I was in the bike business in the 70's and had a fair amount of experience with the Campy products - my opinion reflects what I qualitatively think about the hubs, but I'll be the first to admit that doesn't address the questions of monetary worth in todays collectible market.
