This question already has an answer here:

I don't want to have to deal with terrain when I am rebuilding someone's world on PC Minecraft. They started their world before 1.8 and so I cannot look at F3 to find the seed. Does anyone have an answer?

Run the command '/seed' to find the seed of the world. Sadly you can't copy-paste it though.

    Using /seed then F2 for a screenshot is incredibly useful for this. :) – Tim S. Jun 22 '15 at 23:04
