It's a 20hp Mercury 200 made somewere from 1973 to 1983ish. I'd err towards '73 to '79 looking at the pics under the cowl. The serial number doesn't match anything on the oldmercs.com site.
Got a pic of the cowling? The year may be identifiable by the graphics.

It's an early one from the cowling-It looks remarkably similar to the 1973 one I had.
