Clipper Plymouth Rock

Did Pan Am B747SP N538PA ever wear the name "Clipper Plymouth Rock" ?

According to a B747 Production Book, the aircraft N538PA B747SP Pan Am ( c/n: 21548 - 331) was renamed "Clipper Plymouth Rock" back in 1980. 

But we have photos before and after that date where it carries the name "Clipper Fleetwing" which is was given on roll-out from the Boeing factory in 1978.

Yes, it sure did.
