70's or 80's Pacific brand Premier, tubing?

Hello again,
Got a line on a 70's or 80's Pacific brand Premier. Stem shifters tell me it's not high end, but that's ok. Seller claims chromoly tubes but also claims the sticker was falling off and therefore removed. We've all heard that chestnut before so I'm wondering if anyone has actual experience with or owns a Pacific Premier 12 speed Touring and can verify or dispute his claim. Otherwise how would you tell? Strip it to the frame/fork assembly and weigh it? If so what should it weigh?
Thanks!

The first thing would be to look inside the seat tube (remove seat post) and look for a seam (take a photo, it's the easiest way) . If there is no seam it is drawn tubing at least.
