I don't know for sure, but it looks like early '80s.
The negatives first:
No "braze ons"; meaning no bottle bosses, shifter bosses, brake cable housing guides, derailleur cable guides.
Nutted brake calipers (I'm being kind of nit picky here, there's nothing "wrong" with that, just more indicative of low end by this time).
Low end seat post.
Stamped steel dork disc
Lugged, though, so that's a big plus.
Forged dropouts (as opposed to stamped), so that's another plus.
Awesome, So according to the serial number break down, it is a Trek 950, 21" frame (5'10'' so it could fit) Made in January of 1980, but according to an other part of the site, trek started making the 950 in 1981???
am a bit perplexed, the first character appears to be an O in the serial number, which corresponds to a 950 model, however everything on the bike matches a 412/414 model, but those serials started with the letter M?
So im lost needless to say, the guy had a 460 that I think im gonna go back and pick up, along with an xxlite Traveler, World Sport,Liberia, and a few more that I am forgetting LOL
