Queston about 1986 Centurion Iron Man Bars

Does anyone know the correct bars that would have been on a 1986 Centurion Ironman?
I'm working on my 86 Ironman. In that past I had begun a conversion to brifters but decided now to bring it back to original. Problem is, the OEM handlebars that came with the bike had holes drilled in them by the previous owner (brilliant move to attach something, who knows what!) So they are gone to recycle (probably a beer can by now). I have several vintage bars at my disposal. If I have the correct ones, I'd like to use them instead of just random choice.
Anyone know what the answer is, correct bars for a 1986 Centurion Ironman.
Thanks for input.

And they are beautifully engraved with the Olympiade globe on one side and "N" in a wreath on the other side .

Thanks all for the input. When I started working on the bike, I changed out the new, bronze colored bars for a nice looking vintage handlebar. Before I put the bar tape on, I wanted to see how close I could come to the correct set. As good luck would have it, the bars I grabbed are Nitto, Olympiad 115! That sure saves some time.
