C-Record centrury brake levers?

I picked these up recently as 'grey-green campagnolo brake levers', which sounded too good to be true, so the question is as I've never seen any in the flesh - are these Century finish, they're all kinds of shiny with a grey green anodised finish so unless there's another model I'm unaware of, I'm thinking they are..

Obviously they've been well used:





And one with a Mirage brifter to show it's not a trick of the light:

I would say so and they are, incase you didn't know, Power Grade lever for use to make Deltas work better.

Century finished C-Record stuff had been pulling invery big bucks lately. You are a lucky guy to have these!
I still remember when they did not really sell any better than the regular C-record/Delta brake components, for some reason, people are now digging the dark (smoke) color on these. It's really weird, cause most black/dark anodized components usually still sell for less money than clear anodized stuff. Just like when I was pretty much the only bidder for an NOS black anodized Stronglight Delta headset last year, and it sold for much less what clear anodized versions were going for.
Same with a black anodized ITM stem I also bought last year which was a bargain.
