Good lighting seems to be more important than a digital camera for examining the plate on the steering stem. (But it would seem that a camera would make finding the engine number possible on an engine that would be otherwise impossible to read.)
The UK does not seem to require Honda to put any build dating on a Pan, but maybe some other European countries do require it. On a Y model, the probable year of the build is 1999.
'Tis not its looks, but how it cooks.
And I've found that most liter size Pans, when warmed up, cook well.

After a long search, it appears that the build year, much less the build month, is absent from all Pans to which we have access to. (There is one German version we know of in Finland. Maybe we can still get someone to look at it, or at an Austrian version of a Y model, or at a Norwegian version, or at an ST1300 type Pan.)

Again, is there any Pan owner who thinks he knows when his Pan was built?

The good news is that month of manufacture seems to be on every ST1100. (We can use that to estimate for Pans.)
