(1st Model) 3.6X OIP FAL Scope - Serial Number Survey

I've seen the photos - I know there are some out there. Who has got a 1st model 3.6x OIP for the FAL? It will have markings behind the elevation turret that read:

A.B.L (YEAR)
TELESCOPE FAL
2112F 500.200
(OIP) No ####

Right now, I have a low serial number of 2067 dated 1958. The high serial number is 2636 dated 1959. I am interested in any serial numbers lower, or higher, than those numbers.

Let me know what you got!

Thanks,

Goose
