JA Dubow G1 MIL-J-7823 (AER)

Hello everybody!

Is there anyway to tell an early MIL-J-7823 AER from a later one? I know the specification started in 1951 and ended in 1961. The particular one I'm looking at is made by J.A. Dubow with the contract number being N383S-47654. Im hoping its an early one as those could have seen service in Korea. Attached are images of the tag and the front of the jacket.

To answer your initial question, JA Dubow 7823 would be Korean War era as I used to have a patched JA Dubow and I know the pilot flew night fighter missions during the war.
