Is this a '87 Pinarello Veneto frame and what's the value?

Hello, I'm new to the forum and need some help confirming the model and value of a vintage frame I picked up. I believe that its a "Record Blue" 1987 Pinarello Veneto. It seems to match the catalogue pics from that year and has matching specs and details: Columbus Aelle tubing, sloping fork crown, no Pinarello pantos on the seat stays or fork crown and the chainstays aren't chromed.

When I bought the frame it was equipped with Ofmega headset and cranks, Modelo America brakes and Campagnolo Victory downtube shifters and derailleurs. All of those components are noted in the catalogue as being the base groupsets for that year (except for the Modolo brakes).

The frame is 57cm c-c x 56cm c-c and has its fair share of scratches but no dings or dents. Surprisingly most of the decals are still intact, except for the model decal that is supposed to be on the top the toward the front. So, to the questions: Did I get the frame research right? What's the value of this model and year frame? Here are some pics...if I uploaded them correctly. Many thanks!
