Peugeot Super Sport 80's with 531 Frame

I bought an old Peugeot Super Sport which I am restoring. I am about the get it powder coated true to the original paint and decals. The issue is the frame seems to be Reynolds 531 judging by the Reynolds decal and frame weight of 2200g, however, online I cannot find any reference to a super sport ever being 531. Does anyone know of a super sport existing with 531 (frame only), and should i replace the old 531 decal with a new one?

Some of the Canadian built ones had 531 main tubes a pic of the bike and original frame sticcker if you have it would help determine what tube set your bike actually has.

I am pretty sure its made in France as it says so on the decal. It has streamline aluminium pedals.

As I think 2200grams is right for a 531 frame

What size of seat post does it take? Does it have forged dropouts with an integral derailleur hanger or are they stamped and require a derailleur with a claw adapter? What is the serial number?

Regarding the Canadian market Super Sport, I can't recall seeing one with Reynolds 531. The ones I've seen are UO9/UE9 and variants, with Peugeot 103 or Carbolite 103 tubesets.
