Campagnolo Omega 19 rims?

A Campagnolo Omega 19 rim laced to a Shimano 600 hub came into my possession recently. I forget what the cassette was, but that isn't as important. I'm not familiar with this rim/hub, but do know shimano 600 stuff tends to be nice.

If anyone could shed some light on what I have, rough worth (its in good condition), I'd appreciate it!

If it's a rear, $40-$65, unless the person who has only the front one wants it. Then, $100. Just joking.

Earlier Shimano 600 hub would be a freewheel attached, in 6-speed. The earliest is friction, then there was indexed.
The later 600 hub (with the 3 little colored squares on the hub decal) can be set up with a 7-sp freewheel, or a freehub with either a 7-sp or 8-sp cassette.

I'd find out exactly what you have on that wheel, count the spokes, and it could fetch up to $100 if it's one someone really needs.

the rim is just a basic heat treated clincher that came in either black or silver. if it is good shape it should be a good riding wheel, provided it matches your equipment

Honestly, you might be better off with the two seperated since it's a Shimano hub mixed with a Campy rim unless someone is going to be running their bike with friction shifting.

Frankly, there is very little value in that wheel to a knowledgeable cyclist. You don't say which version of the Omega 19 you have but the hard anodized versions are prone to cracking at the spoke holes. If it is a 6 cassette as you state, that means it is a Uniglide freehub. The cassettes are very difficult to find and they are incompatible with HyperGlide due to the threaded outer cog. However, if the outer cog is the threaded style and is in good condition, that has some resale value.
