Is this a new style Campy RD or old style

Above is the only all Campy site I'm aware of that mentions something
with a picture on verifying derailleur years. Takes a while to figure
out site, but what you want should be on above page that you need.

It's an old-style. The tension adjuster screw on the old ones is at the
hanger mount, which is where we see it here. New-style, it's at the
lower pivot.

Thanks, that's just what I needed. I want to convert a cross bike from
Shimano to Campy shifters.

As has been pointed out, older style but fully compatible with any
Campag shifter, including 10s ones, regardless of what some say about
pre and post 2001 compatibility.
