Help w/ identifying fork ends

These are from Reynolds 531 fork, no markings. Forks had the French 531 triangular decal.

Any ideas? TIA

Not sure, but they could be Vitus dropouts. They usually had that angular, faceted look to them.....

Yeah, could be that. Might also be the front dropout version of the cool honeycomb dropouts usually attributed to Huret but probably made by Vitus (they're not in any Huret catalog I can find.) Most often found on Gitanes.
