Also help you grab hold for a quick tighten. Never seen Campag ones before.

They're not finishing caps, they're there to make it easier to tighten your toe straps. Weren't they called toe strap buttons?

I think the Campagnolo ones only came with Campagnolo toe straps which came with some of their pedals.

I have seen large numbers of these for sale at bike jumbles. Not rare.
