You have a bit of a prize there shellalush. (From what I've ascertained, all of them were at least very good.)
- Are you located in the US? They are extremely uncommon here.
- And there's a C&V'er here I know who could tell you more, when he gets the chance.

Meanwhile we would all like to see pictures - Drive side, and whatever detail you can provide on the components, and especially frame labels.
Also the serial number is needed to define the year.

What auchencrow says, except the serial number will not be much use, as I have just discovered in trying to get closer than 'probably 1982' for my own Silk frame, as the records are all in storage at Katakura's headquarters in Gunma prefecture.

Photos are essential.
