What is it? (Campagnolo widget content)

Went out to the co-op today to get the cable guide for "Veloh" out of their "small Italian bits" drawer. I've seen this a few times in there and I've always wondered what this is. Packaging material? Actually I'm not even sure the blue Campy "button" and the black rubber triangle thing even go together. Now that I'm thinking about it, the black piece might be a stem clamp filler thingy? The "button" has a small boss on the back side...

Isn't that blue disc the thing that come on new C-Rec era shifters to keep everything together? howabout a pic of the other side?

The black piece is definitely a stem-slot filler for a Cinelli XA or equivalent. I think BG may be right about the Campy bit, but we do need to see the other side to be sure

Yeah, it's a syncro shipping... thing. And a slot filler for an XA or the like.

Huh. I got one a them knurled bolt thingies, I always wondered what it was for.

Just looked on eBay, these are going for very reasonable prices for Campy reach-down switchers.
