I have recently acquired a Campagnolo freewheel/ fixed hub with a steel shell and alloy flanges. Any one know anything about them?

They were Campag's standard hub model during the 1950s until the introduction of the one-piece forged Record shell circa 1958. They were made for Campag by Fratelli Brivio, and you sometimes see very similar hubs marked FB.

There were road and track variants, with both small and large flanges.

Huge picture! Almost to big to see clearly but from what I can make out it appears to be a small flange Gran Sport double sided hub.
