concluding from dd raw dump size to disk mfgr

I made a dd dump of a raw disk device the other day. The size of the 
dump is exactly

500107862016 bytes in size, corresponding to 997773168  sectors (512bytes).

I would like to dump this file back to a physical device. Best would be 
the one which fits exactly that size. Unfortunately I presently don't 
know what drive mfgr./type this corresponds to. Is there a way to find out?
