The earliest use of that down tube decal style seems to be from 1975, and the earliest use I can find of the lion's tricolor background on the side of the seat tube is 1977. The chrome stays and Nervex lugs indicate it to be a PX10, but I can find no reference to a two-tone Nervex-lugged PX10 in 1977 or later so I don't know. I don't have complete catalogs from the mid-'70s and the French are notorious for doing things "out of spec" so the best I can tell you is that it's probably a mid/late-'70s PX10.

Nice find. One of these days I'm going to finish up my ~1974.
