JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Naturalization verification notations on passenger manifests #general

In the JewishGen infofile on passenger manifest markings in the occupation column
(, it is stated that the
naturalization verification markings start with the district number (one or two
digits) followed by the application number (most commonly six digits). I am finding
that this longer number is usually, or maybe always, the certificate of arrival
number, not the application number. I could provide any number of examples. I
have yet to find one that I can verify as an application number, at least as far as
the New York City area. If anyone can provide an example where the notation is
definitely an application number, I would like to know about it.
