My guess would be a Competition GS or perhaps a Gran Sport with extra chrome and braze-ons. The decals are nominally pre-war RRA but they were also used by Raleigh for refinish work post-war as well as on a few complete bikes that were boxlined. The 70's RRA had Nervex lugs of course. Very pretty frame in any case!
