So, you deleted a contact from a device 6 months ago and are now no longer using that device but want to restore that number? Good luck. Your best option is to visit https://contacts.google.com and see if it's recoverable there. That's your best option. There's no way to scan a new device to find something deleted from a different device.

If it's not listed at Google Contacts, it's not recoverable. You can only recover contacts deleted within the last month. But deleting it from the phone might not have deleted it from the site.

Welcome to Android Central! If you really want to do some digging, you could look through your wireless phone bill for that month (the detailed version that shows every single call you made or received) and see if you can recognize the number there.
