Campagnolo front derailleurs

I have a hard time to identify these Campi front derailleurs.
I am pretty sure the front one is a Victory. Or not?
What is the 2nd one?

First one looks like a 990 to me. Is the second a C record perhaps?

for readers with an interest in the history of Campag front mechs

there is a detailed history here of the Record model series from its 1959 launch onward

had long thought there were only three or four or five generations, learned its much more involved than that

Not that it matters much but +1 one they look like a 80's 990 and record. Myself I can't see much difference between the 990 and the Victory, nearly all the Campy FD from this time frame look and perform about the same IMHO.

The Victory clamp is double hinged. That's Campagnolo saying, "I too want to protect your beautiful paint, young feller with the great taste in Italian componentry."

I guess I never paid close attention to the little details . I knew about the GS , Record , Super Record , and I have one bike with the matchbox FD . They all work the way they should . The matchbox one surprised me , it came on an old Stella that was given to me . The bike had been hanging in an old dirt floor garage for over 30 years and , after spending a couple of weeks completely rebuilding the bike , worked perfectly as it should . Even the Velox entry level RD shifted through the touring gears with ease. The GS shifters held tight with just a knurled cap hand tightened. I had always run SunTour in the seventies as I couldnít afford no fancy Italian stuff. That bike converted me , not because they worked well , because they looked like jewelry. Now I can afford the brand so thatís what I like.
