Campagnolo Brake ID

Can't ID these myself. Any help is appreciated.

I noticed brake pad holders are mismatched.

edit: going with Triomphe
edit2: based on the below, I did not choose wisely.

Super Records had the eccentric cam style quick release. The lesser models had these double jointed QR levers.
Those look like Modolo brake pad holders with most likely, their much maligned sintered brakepads.....

Always thought those wire wheel guides were funky (cheap looking) at best, way worse not mounted on Modolo's.

The script logo on the arms was really introduced with the Colbalto calipers, which were an offshoot of the 50th Anniversary calipers.
these I would call at their core, Victory. With substituted pads and holders from Modolo and mismatched adjusters, the tall one being much later.
the chrome plating guides me to Victory, as I recall, and might be off, Triomphe used cad plating on the quick release.

the simple, open, shut QR worked well enough but was not the cool eccentric of the Record offering.

Victory has conical nuts like those pictured. Triomphe has hollow nuts, unlike those pictured.

What's funny is the nuts were what made me choose, based on the first couple [now I know as mislabeled] pics I saw on the web.

You'd have the same difficult time distinguishing the campy brakes on my '87 falcon I recently built up. They're triomphe, but i replaced the nuts with victory conical ones. Does that make them victory? Maybe so.

Super Record and Record brakes shared the same calipers; only the levers were different (Super Record had drilled levers). Script logo puts them in the 80s, the quick release means Gran Sport/Triomphe/Victory level, pivot bolt nut suggests Victory.

Didn't Super Record come with aluminum pad holders, while Nuovo Record used steel?

Going through the internet, including past threads in our very own forum, Im getting mixed messages. One set of folks say its levers only, and another says its levers, and aluminum pad holders. And yet a third claim points out the presence (or lack there of) of black plastic covered tire guides.

One thing is clearly evident to me however... Campy sure has done a good job at creating a fair amount of confusion along its way.

I have whats obviously SR levers, that were sold to me with what were stated to be SR calipers. However, the pad holders are steel which according to info Ive gathered led me to believe theyd actually be NR. But then the plastic covered tire guides would suggest SR if other claims have been accurate. At this point, Im perfectly content to not fret over things, and to simply accept that the calipers I have are... Record!

At least for the vast majority of production time, both NR and SR campy brakes had steel pad holders. Only the levers were different. However, there were a few oddball changes in the last year or two of SR/NR, and it wouldn't surprise me if SR used aluminum holders during that transitional time. That's when they changed the locknuts and sthe script on the arms. One more thing wouldn't be a surprise. I've just never seen them - or more likely don't remember. I would like to if someone has a picture. Hint @TiHabanero

What was the price on these? With a set of Kool Stop blocks instead of the 30+/-yo Sinthered pads they would make a good serviceable brakeset.

When was the last time anyone actually opened their NR/SR quick release just a little bit?

probably about 1987.

It actually was a useful feature back when spokes use to break, or when you bent a wheel on a pothole or cowguard or whatever. Allowed you to use max braking even after you wheel was bent. Single pivots could track a bent wheel.

Found this pic on Velobase. This was last hurrah of Super Record brakes. Note the new script stamped on the arms, and conical locknuts. The pad holders do appear to be aluminum.

Apparently as I learned, decades ago, Super record lever holes were put in the sheet aluminum while it was flat ,
before going into the next punch press, to shape them.

that's why the holes are not round , It was to help wet finger grip, I expect..

a little time with a rat-tail needle file rounded our the holes in mine,,
