By "internally lugged", do you mean that there is no exterior lug visible? If so, you have a welded frame. Any good Peugeot would have Reynolds 531 tubing, and a sticker. Lower-end Pugs used a type of tubing made by Vitus.

Judging from the low-end parts (I assume the hubs are Helicomatics?), what you have is probably a later, less expensive Peugeot, one that was likely sold in a sporting goods store. (I was working for a shop owner who sold Peugeots when they decided to start this practice. He dropped the line, as did many other dealers at the time.)

I guess the best indicator are these 2 tests: Does the bike have suicide levers? Does it have a spoke protector? If yes, then it's a $20 bike at best.
