Help Identify this 210gal tank brand?

I'm looking into buying a used 210gal tank and was wondering if this sounds like any brand of tank you might know. Have not yet seen the tank (a long drive to get there), but seller says it is 72long x 24 (front to back) x 28high, one inch bottom, 3/4 inch sides (glass), no brace at all on top but rimmed with plastic wood trim around base and top. Says 6-7 years old. Seller bought it second hand and does not know. I'm stumped

Sounds like an old school tank. Bet it weighs alot as the newer tanks are made out of 5/8" glass with braces on the top trim.

Sometimes you can tell the manufacturer by the width of the lip the glass canopy lids are supposed to rest on if the trim hasn't been replaced.

The All Glass lip is narrower than the Perfecto lip which helps explain why the glass lids are not usually interchangeable between manufacturers. Not a proven fact but one that I have noticed on tanks I have purchased used and new.

Sounds almost like my 210, the dimensions are a little different but the glass thickness is the same. Mine was made by LeeMar.
