I see from the transfers that yours is a 531 SL frame. I can't remember when Reynolds started making the SL version of 531 but it might not have been as early as 1974.
Mark, you're hunch is correct -
531"Special Lightweight"or SL was introduced in 1978.
"Designer Select"was a builder's choice
mixed tubeset of 531C and 531ST - introduced in 1981.
