Production number would probably be per the particular VIN on the last 5 or 6 digits (forgot qty).
The badge number doesn't really correlate to the VIN or when it was made. IIRC, they put them on the dashes here once it got off the boat and not in the factory. Suppose you may be able to get an idea *if* they were shipped in order *and* they were putting the badges on in sequential order. Doubtful it was done like though.
Somebody else will probably have more info/specifics about the badge, etc.
