Looks to be 86-0025. According to Joe Baugher's site:

-0025 ...Delivered to 436th AW at Dover AFB Feb 9, 2009. Named "Spirit of Global Reach".

And from

Serial: 86-0025
Type: C-5M
C/N: 500-111
Comment: 'The Spirit of Global Reach'

BTW - the 436th Airlift Wing is the active duty wing (AMC) assigned to Dover AFB. The 512th Airlift Wing is the AF Reserve wing at Dover - they are an "associate unit", working together with the 436th, flying the same aircraft, hence the two wing designations and command emblems on the aircraft you saw.
