not uncommon for that era boats to get a new tank.

Perfectly fine. Use it until it leaks (tongue in cheek). That fuel cell will last your lifetime unless you gouge a hole in it.

Odd that it is post-dated the model of the boat. The 84s had the same poly fuel cell at that time but one never knows for sure....

I would not hesitate one moment to use your current cell....

My 84 had the older aluminum tank (filler on the driverside). I know some later 84's had the poly tank like my 85 with a he fuel filler on the passenger side.
