Don,

...absolutely.

Campy was dumping non-C.P.S.C. compliant wares in Europe and the Pacific Rim for at least a couple of years after said configurations were no longer shipping to the United States in order that they might deplete held stock of various bits and pieces. However, with regard to the particular brakeset in question on eBay there is also the distinct possibility that someone along the line has managed to cobble together an "NOS" grouping from various individual NOS pieces on hand and then placed the resulting amalgamation into an NOS box (...I have certainly seen this "trick" done on several occasions here stateside too). At the very least those black "shield logo" hoods would have originally been found on Gran Sport levers and NOT a Record model (...gum or white, yes - but black, no way).
