Just purchased an 831 (#643068) from Rochester, NY. Good condition, only missing dust cap and manual. Works well, very minor restore to commence shortly. Any way to tell approximate age? Hand written note in the case says 1961?

1964.  The first two digits are the year of manufacture.   Should be a great scope.
