Recommended tire pressure for W108 280SE needed

I bought a used w108 280se and found that tire placard on fuel door is lost.
Can anyone tell me what's the recommended tire pressure on tire placard please?

Thank you very much for answers.

Unfortunately I can't. I'm still deployed. I don't go by the placard even so - each tire, whether by class or tire to tire, has a rated pressure. I always go with what's stamped on the rubber
