Odometer Mechanical Limits

I'm lookin at a 1976 Mercedes 280c and the odometer resets at 99,999. Now it says 28,121 and I was wondering how to find out the actual mileage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MB odometers are notorious for failing. I have two W115's and neither arived in my hands functional. The best bet is to research the records depending on how good they are. If records are spotty or poor just estimate (a compression test would definitely help) and go with that!
