Where's the wheel code ?

I was having a look at my rims today, trying to find the offset.

On the inside of the wheel on the hub are three groups of numbers,  four digits "7849", a single "7" and something like "134", "1 34" or "i 34".

I'm guessing 7849 is 49th week 1978, the 7 could be 7 inch rims but I thought they were 6 1/2 inch.

Is the 34 the offset and is that literally 34 mm, the mounting face of the hub being 34 mm from the wheel's centre line?

Is offset the same thing as what I've seen referred to as wheel code?

Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, Amen!
