Original rear brake parts

Is there anyway to identify the original rear brakes parts - shoes, cyc, drums and springs?

GM drum brake shoes of this period have a groove running down the middle to show when pad was worn down to a level where they should be replaced. I do not know if any aftermarket shoes did that. Wheel cylinders have a cast date much like  any other cast piece on the car.  The other items in your question I am also interested to hear about.
