The version number points to CCA Emacs, a proprietary emacs
implementation. The year 1984 is probably correct, but I'm only guessing
from Google results like you did. There is a document explaining some
differences between GNU Emacs and CCA Emacs at 
<http://stuff.mit.edu/afs/athena/contrib/epoch/epoch-4.2/etc/CCADIFF>,
dated 1985.
