The dash alone was several thousand dollars.

Most hood stickers pre-1986 were void of option codes that were part of the overall vehicle build. In many cases, hardly any appear on the hood sticker despite the car being well optioned. Porsche did not start getting better about this until 1986. But even in the 2000s, there are build options that oftentimes dont appear because they run out of space. Ive seen that with a lot of cars with 12-15 X-code options. They tend to put the X codes on the sticker, but leave off other more mainstream ones.

Like the COAs, Porsche has never really focused on being consistent and accurate in their recordkeeping. Some of it you take with a grain of salt.
Thanks...I think you are right. The dash is light rootwood and it is not your normal veneer. It is approx 1/4" think and made of solid wood. And, it is really done to a high quality. The shift know and ebrake are leather wrapped.

So, the big question is what is that "S" in the lower right corner of the hood sticker?
