Mystery Campy calipers... help ID

I grabbed a pair of campy brake off ebay for 18, which seemed like a decent a bargain, seeing as they're in excellent visual, mechanical condition.

so from what I gather (a single bid, mine), i've hit the low-low-end campy stuff here... they were sold to me as Gran sport model, but the seller is obviously confused... I cannot take that for granted.

there are no markings on any of the calipers., no GS , no Brev int. , no nothing.

here's the photo, i'll see if I can come up with something of better quality...

They look like my old Campy Victory calipers.

the only difference I see are the central cone-nuts... mines are hollow... maybe they're not originals.

The block lettering and the quick release style tell me they're Gran Sport.

I think Victory brakes were the later model Gran Sport brakeset. They are nice brakes - the same arms as the record, just not a variable quick release.
