Things get complicated when there's confusion about terminology, especially when the question isn't a very common one. You first said you wanted to "determine the version of a repository", which in hindsight, is probably the right question, although a rather unusual one (especially for the TortoiseSVN mailing list). You later said you wanted to "determine which revision of subversion his repository was created with", which confused me because you started asking about revisions.
In any case, if this is all about repositories, and not about working copies, it seems to me that the Subversion mailing list would be a better place to ask, not the TortoiseSVN mailing list. This seems to be a rather unusual question--you mention merging not working, but I don't know how that would be related to the version of SVN that the repo was created with. If the repo hasn't been upgraded, some new features may not be available, but merging should work as well as it did in older versions--nothing should actually break. I suspect the "format" file in the repo root and/or "format" in the db subdir would give you the info you need, but that's getting into internal details that I don't know about.
Maybe if you just described the exact problem you're having, we could be of more help? Or if you're absolutely convinced that knowing the repo's version will solve all of your problems, try asking users_at_subversion.apache.org
