Don,

Three of those axles appear to be the very early version that has an O-ring channel rather than the helical dirt-spitter-outers. I don't know exactly, but I associate the O-rings with Record pedals from the 1950's. I think they were also called Gran Sport in an earlier period. I've seen some ratty O-ring pedals sell for crazy money on Ebay. This includes, but is not limited to early Con Dentes. I suppose there are a lot of those pedals with axles that have rust (as many old Campy axles do) or pitted races. It might also be that the buyer plans to convert a set of newer pedals into older pedals, if you know what I mean.
