A very nice fun item!  A Gipiemme quick release skewer, rear, 6sp.  This skewer looks to be of lovely quality and is factory NOS from the big Ochsner purchase.  Most have some factory lube that has dried out and both makes them operate roughly and look crusty. But take it apart and clean out the old crusty lube and re-lube it, and boy it work beautifully! 

 

We're a bit used to Campy skewers can sometimes be fussy (to get securing nut tight on assembly skewer runs rough).  But the dried-lube Gipiemme one we tried which moved terribly, was like butter after we clean and lubed it!  These really seem to be top notch quality.  Note that for the rears we have 5 and 6sp (5sp sold as a different item).  Some of the 6sp ones vary in length a tiny smidge, but all are clearly longer than the 5sp ones.  You will get luck of the draw on these when you order a 6sp, it will come out of the distributor bag that was marked as a 6.
