ID'ing a Guerciotti frame, Can anyone help?

Hi all,
I purchased this Guerciotti frame at the tip for $10 so I thought I'd grab it and make my first attempt at restoring a bike for my daily short commute to work.

I wanted to know if the frame is an actual Guerciotti? it has all the decals etc... however apart from the stem being engraved with the 'G' there is nothing else on the frame that might suggest it's an original Guerciotti, any help on how to identify this frame would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if this applies to all Guerciottis but you should see something like this.......

Blue one may be higher end, Italians wanted to sell bikes at lower and higher price points

the one you got sold for less, new , no investment cast lugs BB shells , and such...

Internet guess worth every penny you paid..

Yeah, pics are of different blue bikes. Most are '84-'85 SLX frames, pretty high up in the line up.

Guerciotti or not OP's frame looks to be a good one. Worth the money for sure.
