Indeed interesting Greg; would you like to start a separate thread for the serials?
Sorry, I didn't see this sooner. I went to get my J-3 for the serial # & low & behold it's not a 63 at all but a N6002015. All this time I thought it was a 63? Now I'm scratching my head how I came up with the year 63.
Loosing my mind. Anyhow early 60 models are good.
