I don't have the link on my phone but google orange field guide and you'll find Geert's really useful site for dating it.

Your amp is from 1977.

Depends on the '200W' worth of speakers and also on how much low end you put through them. If they are 200W worth of Celestions you should be okay. (They'd take a cranked 200W amp - Celestions are always conservatively rated.) Some other makes might be at risk depending on just how much juice they can really take. Also an OR120 can put out some serious low end which could damage most speakers if you got too careless.
