Coppie?

Hi,
Would anyone have any idea whether the below bike is actually a Coppi and what it's worth?

I reached out to the seller; waiting to hear back.

Thank you.

The 7700 and Rolfs suggest it's probably something flash, but hard to say without paint... I'd look at the RD hanger to check if Coppi used that style.

Dunno, but those ugly welds are ugly.

Not anything Coppi would recognize.
