1940 Jun 30 - 1536285 Last known serial number struck - substantially higher numbers are mis-strikes (Beard)
High probability that 1536285 - 1536325 is the range of last serial number struck (Beard)
Not trying to put words in John's mouth but the "1940" might have been "Fiscal 1940" - i.e. late 1939 to late 1940.
