Never understood Galli. Is it a poor manís campy?

seems they have the same looking stuff, even when Campy had the patents.

Generally Galli's finish and quality certainly does not match Campagnolo, but in many areas they get close.
You might say that Galli is about the same level of quality and finish as the better and best of French components, as they did use a lot of French stuff (like cranksets and pedals) that they re-branded as part of their gruppos.
As for the brakeset pictured, it looks very much like the sidepulls made by Italian manufacturer, Universal (Especially at the double jointed quick release mdchNism at the calipers.), which is also considered a step below Campagnolo.

kinda figured.

So, what are these worth?

I think someone who is searching for GALLI components might want them more than me who tends to stick with one brand so parts are compatible.

Not worth as much as A Campy brakeset like the NR, in the same condition, but certainly not worth peanuts.
I think at NOS mint condition like that, maybe 300 bucks max. If it does not have good lever hoods, you might knock off up to 40 bucks from that price, as I suspect, it will be pretty hard to find original Galli hoods for those levers.
Best to sell the set to a collector thst might be trying to complete a bike with a Galli gruppo to get the max price out of it.

Little over $100

These sell on evilBay for around $100. They are nice looking though; kinda like early Superbe.

In nice nos condition with the original box packing in good shape I think you should be able to get $100 or so here on the Forums or $150 on ebay.
