Peugeot Serial Number Identification

I would like to find out the true serial number, year, make and model of my Peugeot Mixte.
Here is the info:
These letters and numbers are on the underside of the bike frame by the kick stand screw: 3234957 P18T 53
I also found another set of numbers, stamped on to the rear wheel frame by the wheel axis (?):
Y311 72200

What do you think? Also, any idea on the year? Right now I believe it to be a 1982 P18 Carbolite A103:

Shimano derailleur = 1985
Huret derailleur = 1984

To be specific...

3234956 is the sequential serial number. Check under/around the black cable under the BB for a stamped serial number. In general, but not always with Peugeots the number following the letter, Y3, refers to the year the frame was manufactured. Your frame was manufactured in 1983 for the 1984 model run.

Model is a P18T 'T' refers to the flat stlye handlebar. The same bike with drop bar would be a P18C where the 'C' designates a drop bar. '53' is the size in CM.
