Highest number known on this base is X/N J428.

Color variation - these plates are in as-found condition and were never repainted.
Whatever environment they were in caused the orange to fade/oxidize to ... green.

In late 1959, a few commercial plates were made with the "N. J." on the bottom, with new thinner dies like the upcoming tan 1960 base.
They were also made of aluminum, whereas the earlier plates were steel.
The steel plates with the stacked NJ stopped sometime after X/W C764, and the new aluminum plates started before X/W E841.

Anybody out there have an X/W D series plate ?
