HELP – Information sought on “CENTENNIAL” marked Italian C&B revolver replicas

We plan to add a new page to the Centaure/FROCS website www.1960nma.org on “CENTENNIAL” marked Italian manufactured percussion revolvers. These Italian replicas were sold by Centennial Arms Corporation in the USA from ca. 1961 to at least 1975 in addition to their Belgium made Centaures.
Marks currently known on such percussion revolvers are
CENTENNIAL TRADE MARK
CENTENNIAL ARMS, CHICAGO ILL.
If you have an ITALIAN C&B revolver replica with a mark including "CENTENNIAL" please let me know. I'd appreciate to receive the following information per email at [email protected] :
# picture of the revolver from the right and left side
# picture of the CENTENNIAL mark
# serial number
# name of the manufacture
# picture of the Italian proof mark/year of manufacture.
Thanks for your help.

I recall seeing ads from Centennial for revolvers other than the "1960" model. Are these the Italian replicas? I don't remember what model they offered or if it was even a Colt clone, to many years.
