Help Identifying Possible 531 Frame
Despite this frame having Colnago and Columbus stickers, it appears to be a Reynolds Gazelle frame to my untrained eye. Is it possible that this is 531 tubing, type A frame Gazelle Champion Mondial (the only GCM with eyelets)? It is light and I couldn't see any difference between another Gazelle GCM other than the eyelets? Depending on what I hear back will determine how mucn effort I put into this frame.

Value of a scam frame is minimal. But if you like it, build it and ride it. But don't expect to get value back out of it.
If you do identify it, at that point, you could order reproduction decals, and it would start having value. Good luck with the ID!

I was hopeful someone would be able to tell if it is 531 or not by the seat stays, etc.? Not looking good at this point for my Dutch made GazelNago
seat stays don't tell that much. If they were double taper it would be much more likely to be Columbus. The best way to tell is to see if it has a fluted steerer.
531 Professional and 753 tube sets often came with double tapered seat stays.
