Another Campy Headset ID question

Hello All,

After looking at Velobase pictures I still can't tell if the
headset on my old road bike is an Athena, Chorus -- or
possibly even some other. I bought the headset in the
early 1990s but I probably never knew the difference
even back then.

I think they are actually the same. Some components crossed group lines AFAIK.

I think C-record even looked the same but the races were different, they had a special material under them to dampen vibration or something...

I don't recall if C-Rec had that (I think it was called sealform or something) but it was one of the selling points in the Chorus line. All the HS for Athena, Chorus, CdA, and C-Rec looked alike though.
