It is. My guess is around 1982. This era isn't the most sought after of the SCs, but I had an '83 as my first real steel roadbike and was absolutely in love with it. The "Flying C" logos combined with the earlier build details is a real sweet spot for me on the Cinellis.

The market is a bit flat and honestly, I'm not sure that prices will be going up again in the near future outside of basic inflationary increases. The demand for classic, steel road machines has been in decline the last few years. I think we've reached and passed peak classic steel.
