US Navy Dog tags question

To all Navy vets ,

I'm Having my Dad's tags re-created. I have all the info needed but am wondering about layout. Dad went through boot in 1959 and was active from 60 to 62. Notch or no notch? Space or dash in service number? Does anyone still have their tags from this time period? Would really appreciate any info. Want to make as accurate as possible. Thanks

Interesting....no pos or neg factors for blood type. My bet is my dad's would have read catholic or short for it since he grew up catholic and didn't go baptist till he married my mother in '68. On a side note I do have my Grandpa's WWII Navy tags. I love those oval shaped beautys.

Still wanting tag info

Hey guys anybody have Navy reserve tags from said time period? Dad's papers said Navy reserve after Navy as branch. I'm probably a bit too concerned with getting this to spec but I really want to do this right. Thanks again.
