Is it or is it not (another) Benotto

Hi All
Just bid on a Benotto...spares repair..knocked about with a 'loose pedal arm'.
It's a bitsa everything but is it a Benotto? (low end hi ten p'haps?).
Why I'm asking is there's no pantograph Benotto on the seat stays. Forged and chromed rear dropouts ..but no Benotto embossing, Chrome forks but cannot see if there is 'benotto'..and no view of the bottom of the BB,,so no view of any heart shaped cut out...(about to email the seller)
....just worn Benotto decals on an old purple frame....with mismatched Shimano parts....and banded on shifters..(not brazed on)
36 on ebay so not the end of the world..plus have a week to collect and cough up.

..for the close up photos
Thanks in advance for comments.

I saw that too and it's for sale near my hometown. I thought of asking for BB close-up pics but that old feeling in the gut told me to just move on

As I stated in the other thread on this bicycle, it does not appear to be a Benotto but does appear to be a boom era, higher grade frame and well worth the bid price.
