Looks like it is a matching numbers engine. The 15S409973 is the VIN deritive. Note the S409973 matches the last of the VIN.

The V1218CHB is the engine useage/build codes. V=Flint Engine plant, 1218=engine assembly date (Dec 18), and the CHB=base L48 with auto trans and federal emissions.

Your '75 coupe was built in early Jan 75. So the Dec 18, 74 engine assembly date looks right.
