Correct DJ for Augie March first?

I am guessing you are wondering if the 1st issue DJ should be a K or an
L.  I had this unfounded suspicion that all the firsts I have with an L
jacket should really be a K.  Scanning my inventory I noticed 368.1
through 364.1, all stated firsts, have the L jacket.  Firsts I have to
that point were with the K jacket.  Unless someone has a definitive
answer to the contrary or has this book with a K jacket, I believe the L
is the first.

I have the same issue with 348.1, Dewey on Education.  I have two state
1st copies, one with the K and the other with the L jacket.  I suspect,
in this case, the K is the first.

I have a first of Bellow's The Adventures of Auggie March but I'm not 
certain it's the correct DJ. What should the back of the DJ look like?

The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in 
their possession any swords, bows, spears, firearms or other types of 
arms. The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection 
of taxes and dues, and tends to permit uprising.
