These are the same decals as on my Legnano Gran Premio. It's the lime metallic green with red box lining. It is believed to be a '64 based on the 64 stamped on the backside of the Legnano branded Magistroni steel crankset. The serial # on the side of the seat tube is FM9124. There will be detailed shots of on my Imagestation album sometime soon.

And the decal on the top reads:

E'un Prodotto della S.p.A Emillio Bozzi Milano

Cheers,
