Help with Identification Please?

Hi...we have been looking at a 1981 Irwin 28.5, so we thought? I went to the library and starting reading a book on how to buy a used sailboat.
There was an article on how to identify the "Huli Identification Number"
When I took the picture of the stamping on the transom, I didn't realize how poor the quality of the picture was. I was able to read the last 4 letters and I'm sure it identifies this boat as being built in 1977.
The article read as follows:
12 Elements....first 3 elements designate the builder...2 elements designate the model...3 elements designate the hull series...4 elements designate letters/numbers when construction began. August is Month "A"
I wanted to attach the photo here, but can't? I'd appreciate if someone would volunteer please to help me read this H.I.N. if you could send me your email via PM that would be great.
Thanks All,

Ron
