ID these QR skewers?

...I keep pulling these off Frankenbikes. They look early-90s, but I have no idea who made them. Ideas?

Don't take phone pictures as those Are almost impossible to see even with a magnifing glass. They were a common in the 1990s skewer designed or sold to be lighter weight than the normal skewer because of the wire flipper. I have some floating in my parts suppy some place. I suspect they were sold under a couple of names. Roger

They look very similar to White Industries skewers. Google vintage quick release skewer.

"Svelte," made by Odyssey. A very nice looking design with a couple of silly design errors that give them less-than-secure clamping force.

I guess, as long as they are not dangerous,......... you can call them "silly"....
But "less-than-secure" might still be hard for most people to live with....
