W115 Chassis Number

Would someone be kind enough to verify that my chassis number is 056511 as seen in the picture below?
Despite browsing this form for this stuff I've never quite been able to translate everything the main ID (?) tag.

Costal decoded the VIN for you, which was the first photo. The other tag is the body/options tag.

It tells you the paint code, interior code, body type, engine type, etc......

Do a bit of internet research and you can decode these numbers with ease.

When you are ordering parts at the dealer always give them the VIN number or they cannot figure out the correct parts you will need.

How can I learn the date/month of my car's manufacture? One manual asks whether it was produced before December of 1970, or something along those lines...

But what is the chassis number

I realize this is an old thread, but the original question was about the chassis number. There was a response about the serial number but is that the same as the chassis number? No one has directly answered the question and I'm in the same boat looking for an answer on this one.
1972 220D
1981 300TD
1982 300D
