Can someone help me identify this Brompton?

Hi everyone,

First time post here. I hope this is okay. I am considering buying this Brompton currently on auction online.

One caveat though is that the seller doesn't give any information about the model year.

Should I be weary about this or is this something common with certain Brompton models?

Here is a picture of the serial / code.

It's an M3L in relatively good condition. How much would you guys be willing to pay for something like this? The bidding is currently at 500s dollar and climbing.

Thanks for the help!

It's already at 620 dollars equivalent. As you said I'll probably swoop in at the last 15 seconds depending on the price then.
