Size (7) and the T indicating TSX. Pretty sure Columbus introduced TSX in 1986, but my memory may be incorrect.
Fork has flat crown with Logo pantos, although that was an option for other models at the time.
Bike is definitely a Century, per the original owner who purchased it in 1988. Has the slack seat tube geometry of a Century as well.
So, yeah, weird on the time line vs what we all 'know' about Merckx model introductions.
