I think you may be right....but as Antipodes said, "where is the chrome?"
Is it a 60's model? If you look at the left rear dropout you'll see a 'tang' hanging down.....that is an indication that its a pre-71-ish model. On occassion I'll come across a very early 70's bike with that feature.
Over the years Peugeot used a variety of BB shells, fork crowns and seat lugs on the PX's. Some PX's have the full Nervex Pro lug set including the BB shell. I believe this may be a PX (where is the chrome)but one with only Nervex Pro head lugs. It has all of the other identifiers (except for rear chrome) such as the proper seatstay caps, single RD cable stop and and non-lugged brake bridge.
To answer some of the preceding comments...yes, PX10's could be found with UO8 style fork crowns. Yes, they could be found with plain BB shells.
There is/should be hierarchy to the framsets but I'm not ready piss off alot of PX10 owners....yet.
The bottom line is you need to ask the seller about the rear chroming. Ask in a non-direct way otherwise he'll say he stripped it.
