This will get you close but original may have been off by several hundred either way. Hope this gets you a starting point.

Do not use that link to estimate your hood number! It's way off, especially the later one gets. Lucky for you your MB is early enough that it may get you within a few hundred digits.

Instead, reach out to guys like Tom Wolboldt and he may be able to assist you. He doesn't post here anymore but you can still send him a PM. Are you on Facebook? I can PM you some details.
