What's the real VIN Number?

On the 1986 930 I am in the process of buying, the paperwork shows a proper VIN #, as does the "options sticker" under the front hood. But in the front luggage compartment there is a stamped-in number that is identical, except that three of the characters in the middle are "ZZZ".

Were US VIN numbers assigned by PCNA when they arrived here? Is the US VIN # permanently affixed anywhere else. I ask because I will be importing the car into Cali, and they inspect the car to verify VIN--and if they can get it wrong and cause you trouble, they will.

1986 930, Garnet Red Metallic
