Rocketdyne apparently had at least two vendors for nozzle extensions. This serial number is earlier than other nozzle extensions which I've photographed and was manufactured by Rohr Corp. Other nozzle extensions, with later serial numbers, were manufactured by Precision Sheet Metal Inc. (e.g., the F-1s at the Michigan Space & Science Center and in the JSC Rocket Park).
