Yes, that's mine above. I've seen a couple of bikes with the same decals on the seat tube but with the swishes on the down tube. This pattern seems to go with the model decal showing up on the top tube:

So I guess what I have is the 'old style' and then there was a transitional set of decals for a year or so (above specimen), and then the seat tube decals changed to this:

And then even later examples ('90s) show the seat tube 'Tommasini' going from stacked vertical lettering to the same kind of decal as on the down tube, and the swishes disappearing.
