Help identify the age of this Moet White Star

So i tend to buy older NVs when I can. I love old champagnes. I got several NV Champagnes at a huge discount from a local DC store from a cellar they bought. Its a Moet & Chandon White Star. Taste was very, very old. A smell I could live in for days. Similar to 1970s NV champagnes I've had before. This one obviously had more dosage which only really became apparent after about 3 hrs. Really nice aged flavors and basically flat at this point. However, the extra sugar made it a great foil for fish veracruz

I want to say that this is from the 1970s or 1980s, but I have no idea. The Cork only had Champagne written on the site along with OG, and a SGF on top. Nothing on the cap and only the NM-250-001 only the label. There is a light printing/etching on the bottom side of the bottle Hard to read, but I think its LGAYIG. Any help would be appreciated. Pics below.

Looks like it’s in really good shape; not sure about 70s in that condition

Seems it is from early to mid 80s on, depending on how long it aged in bottle.

1988 at the earliest. The Schieffelin & Somerset name dates from that year, when Guinness and LVMH formed a joint venture out of their US importers.
