The3 "L" prefix tells us that it was manufactured after the GCA of 1968 was enacted into law.

The military contracts for the Model 1200 ran from about 1968 to 1970.  Many of the military guns have serial numbers in the 400,000 range.  The guns in that serial number range do not have the L prefix.  The military serials then jump to the high 500,000 range.   The guns in that range do have the L prefix to the serial number.  Your gun's number (L525700) is in between the low and high numbered military guns.  So your 1200 could very well have been made sometime in the 1968 to 1970 time frame.
