Does anyone have exact dates that the Army changed from the Next of Kin type tags to the ones without?

Any dates on when they used Monel tags opposed to brass and stainless steel?

From what I understand, the change from NOK came in July 1943.

They never used brass tags. You are thinking of yellow monel.

I recently discovered this website -

 

https://www.med-dept...y-ww2-dog-tags/

 

It seems to contain just about anything one needs to identify WW2 era dogtags.
