Cool C and V seatposts

I have a thing for cool seatposts, even retro-hipster ones like the Miche Supertype (one of my favorites)

Anyone recognize this one? I want to say it is a Rino? Why did they replace the top clamp?

I guess for old seat posts- I think the Avocet is cool- I hear they have a tendency to break, so it's not on a 'well ridden' bike now- it just looks cool.

These are not mine- but mine looks the same:








Here it is on my 78 Trek TX700 in an intermediate stage of build:

But I think my all around favorite is the Suntour XC Pro- it has all the adjustment I need and it's outrageously light. Lighter than the Superbe Pro or Dura Ace seat posts I've had.

Nittor? Don't see too many of these. Needs a bit of polish but I'm sure it has a future.

I've started to be a fan of these seatposts by Miche, 3ttt, Rino and Mavi
