Minolta AF HS 200/2.8 how to determine age

I'm considering to buy Minolta AF HS 200/2.8
Is there any Minolta AF HS 200/2.8 history in the web?

When last lenses where manufactured and how to determine the approximate manufacturing date? How old might be unit with Serial Number: 19.101.xxx?

Or 17.801.xxx, I guess that it's much older as serial number probably were sequential?
(Last 3 digits replaced with x)

Thanks!
