Curious about the font/logo

Number on inside of right drop out: 64216

Here are the components and other details (note shown are the Normandy Competition gold label hubs, Stronglight Competition headset, Brooks Pro with no date digits visible, and Weinmann 610 brakes). I strongly believe everything is original equipment, with the possible exception of the Weinmann clinchers.

Edit: I forgot to mention there are no markings on the bottom bracket.
I have a Grand Record as well. Some of the components are the same as what you have and some are not. What's really got me curious is the font used on the down tube for "Motobecane" logo. There seems to be very few like this. Are these older then the bikes with the traditional font/logo?
