I found this very rare item while going through a drawer the other day. It is the first generation Campagnolo Record front derailleur from 1960! You can tell by the chrome plated brass pivot arms that are held to the clamp body by the plated flat head screws and the unslotted cable stop. The arms were later changed to aluminum and were held in place with either a circlip or press fit. Very cool item.
