There have been so many variations of the RC35. Stepped legs, AB, cast brace, Magura brace etc

Does anyone have a picture of the earliest consumer RC35's available?

I found a pair of these recent (very similar to the pic attached)

Are these the earliest? Note the half clamps for the canti studs.

The pre production ones came with the bonded canti studs, most ripped off and were replaced with the clamp on ones, they had the prominent step in the leg, with a sharp edge/step instead of tapered.

not sure hard to tell, here is a pic of my pre production with original foil decals and step in taper, still hard to see the step clearly though

What about the ones that were on Dave Hemmings Roberts White Spider?
I'm thinking of the MBUK Alpe D'huez feature in 91. Didn't these have alu lower legs?

These are mine. Team issue with extra travel (65 mm in total) and Magura mounts.

They added more step after these, probably because (as I found out on my F1 Team build) when using the RC-50 hub, the spokes strike the fork bottom.....
