Specialized Allez identification

I have the serial number:
PM247657.
For some reason I cannot download the pictures.
Looks to be an 80's model with new components.
Any idea of the year?

This may be a Miyata manufactured frame, as they were a known source for SBI and the S/N is consistent with their format. If so, it is from 1987.

This serial number is consistent with a 1993 Allez Comp that I have seen pictures of.

The first digit in this format of serial number, "2", may be for the year of frame manufacture, 1992.

This serial number is not consistent with Miyata serial numbers from 1987. 1987 Miyata serial numbers where seven characters in length, this is eight characters.

I have never seen an Allez serial number, with the frame made by Miyata, that started with the letter "P", which indicates the year of manufacture as 1987.
