Subject: [CR]Dating early Record FD

Hi again from down under - I'd appreciate some help dating what seems to be an early (1960s?) Record front derailleur. It came as an addon to a purchase of a Pat 70 NR Rear, but it may be older?

It is identical to this: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Market_highs/camp_fd_bronzearm.htm - Chrome arm - Both pivot points on the clamp have slotted head screws - Has a cable stop as part of the alloy clamp part

According to http://www.velo-retro.com/tline.html The arms "later changed to aluminum", but it doesn't seem to say when...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
