The high arch blocks were "condemned", if you will, but they weren't destroyed - they were sold to the very aftermarket firms which made up the guns we are discussing! So, the fact that they show up in the early 90's is entirely predictable.
AFAIK, the number of the first cadet is lost to the mists of time. I THINK the first carbine was "1". I know that's what "6" and "8" were.
