For an HB Smith boiler the age is typically the two digits following the letter at the beginning of the serial number. In this case the "80" following the "J" tells us that the boiler was manufactured in 1980.
Our second photo below shows the data tag on the exterior of an HB Smith heating boiler, Model BB14-*-4, (the * indicates that this is a steam boiler), though in my over-shot photo the serial number is not quite visible.
