In brief: No such thing

Even for young adults, these are subscience.
At any adult age, the best weight is what looks and feels right to the person and enables them to do the things they enjoy -- hopefully including some fitness activities. An older person needs adequate muscle but fat isn't an asset. Don't target a number, target a level of fitness and function.
