Lens Serial Numbers

Hello All!
Could anybody suggest a site where I can check the serial number of a lens? I would like to understand when was a lens built according to its serial number, and what generation it belongs to. The lens I'm after is a SMC Takumar 500 f/4.5.

Thank you gents and happy photos!
Andrea
