Colnago date made?

I recently purchased a Colnago Super Hermann frame. Can anyone out there tell me when these were made?

Hmmm...

Post some photos of your bike. The notes I'm seeing indicate the Colnago Super Hermann was from a Swiss reseller in the 1980's.

The Super had a long production from about 1968 to 1988. Details of your frame might help narrow the most likely age to a few years.

My rough guess - 1982.

Most probably will not be one.
Italian mugs were notorious for not stamping serial numbers, batch numbers, yes.
Maybe a way to dodge the tax man?
Later the EU mandated serial numbers for warranty, recall tracking. Later.
