Those mirrors may seem a bit goofy, but man are they useful. I actually took off a pair of Suntour Superbe levers and replaced them with Dia Compes like these just so I could have the mirror. I really dislike helmet or glasses mounted mirrors. Iíve acquired two more for other bikes since then (so Iím good for now).

I have coveted those mirrors for years, and considered(briefly) buying the group just for that.

My favorite mirror also. I have at least 5 or 6. I kept my Superbe levers though. I bought a single and modified it to accept that mirror keeping the stock lever in case I ruined it. Likewise on a first gen AGC lever. I drilled and tapped it for that mirror. Neither modification recommended for the feint of heart, but worked for me. Nice set the OP has too. Mirror would cost $20 too, so a good deal.
