Default How to know the weight class of a used board...

I have a fairly general beginner question about used boards.
How can you know what the weight class is?

With a new board, it should be with a label or paperwork with the board from the store, but used?

Is there a way to know?

Are the numbers stamped on the board a serial number or can I find the weight class with this information somehow?

Thanks in advance!

Happy New Year!

The board is Morrow Radium Japan Limited- about 150cm with my tape measure.
The numbers on the edge are "0342041 152".
I don't know if this is a serial number or this is a design code or something else.

So I take it that there is no industry wide code system that I can use if I shop for a used board?
Just keep the smartphone handy and search each one, I guess.

Correct, no standard. Also, most of the weight charts are kind of crap anyway. There are 150 lb guys riding 176 and 220 lb guys riding 155. A lot depends on what kind of riding you plan to do.
