I want to say the SN plates were added during the last few years of production. Around 1969 or so. Same general timeframe the hydraulic cylinder option was offered o those planters.

Some say there is a serial number stamped in the frame but on all 4 of them that I have here none of them have ever had that. Possibly the latest ones did but not earlier. As the other said get the dealer version of the parts book, Think it is still avaible on Deeres site for free and just start looking at parts and comparing then to what you have and that will give you a general range. I know not all of the parts for the older units are listed in that book so that is also a way to eliminate what you have. I have no idea what the number you found is. Currently I have setting here the 4 290 planters, 1 disk wheel, 1 factory rubber spokes and 2 cuttoff steel. 2 490 planters, built 1940 to 1956, a 450 planter4 row tractor planter built 1932 to 1940, 3 494 planters, a 1957, 1958 and 1959 dated acording to parts list, and none carried a serial number, the newest a late style version of the 494A does have a serial number plate fastened to it. You may be able to find an earlier version of the dealer parts book at a manual dealer that shows the earlier parts and the earlier operators manuals do have a parts list in the back that you could use to compair with and the date is in the book number.

there is a number stamped on top of the frame behind the right wheel. I have a restored 290 planter and was able to get the manufacture date from someone on YT by giving that number. It was a 1948. I was my fathers planter.

I've got a 290 myself. About the only way to get a manufacturing date is to get the parts manual and start looking at the various parts. I could tell that mine was a 1953 model because it still used the round spoke wheels from the early design, but the depth control was of a later design.
