Default ID Plate Passenger Floorboard?

Interesting Easter egg found this weekend.
Pulling interior sound proofing for the track car.

This plate was under the tar based adhesive insert on the floorboard. Made of very thin metal.

I assume it was the body number before it was assigned a chassis number?
It certainly has no correlation to the cars VIN that I can appreciate.

Can anybody confirm or deny my theory?

Indeed, this is the 3842nd body shell for a 1986 928.
You should find the same number in small font on the top left of the trunk sticker. This is the first time that I see such a plate, and I would guess that it was not supposed to stay here. Funny anyway.

Hey, thank you for the insight.

Yeah it it looked like it was riveted to frame at one point, but was not attached to anything the day it got entombed at the factory.
Interesting.
