Raleigh identifacation

Looking to identify this USA Raleigh
I think it might be a 1983 Super Course but I'm not sure.
There is no model name on the frame, but appears to have all it stickers

Bikes are okay, I guess.

My guess is that it is Marathon level and not Super Course, but it looks to be missing frame stickers. It should have Raleigh on the down and seat tubes and a model name on the top tube.

Also, that particular crankset, when original to the bike, is an indicator of a lower-end machine. A Super Course or a Grand Prix would have a nicer unit on it.
