Original Colnago Oro?

Ciao, I am wondering if this is an original but early Colnago Oro version. Normally, these versions seem to have a golden chainstain and full golden forks or (of course) the full golden plated Colngao. This frame here has the gold only on the top of the fork and headset. Any ideas if this is an original oro frame? Thank you very much in advance.

I wonder why no one replied to this, looks like a nice frame but I'm not really up on models.

Looks like a mid 80s frame with a much older fork to me.

I am not sure about the Oro model. I think it looks like a Super with gold plated lugs and fork crown, which could be what an Oro is. I think Colnago marketed different trim or pantograph as limited production bikes.

I find interesting is the chrome on the ends, only gold on the headlugs and crown.
