Follow-up ? on Lake City Brass

Guys answered me here regarding hash-marks 3/8th of an inch up from the base on the case of Lake City Match brass. Was told markings machined into the brass to make it easy for troops to ID match rounds against combat rounds. Question is, I understand older LC Match does not have the hash-marks machined on them. One guy said the newer stuff with the hash-marks is equal quality/consistency early on, but the hash-marks do cause a weak "ring" on the brass and that newer LC Match with the marks can;t be reloaded as many times as older stuff without the hashing. Yes?? NO?? Anyone know what year LC started marking the match brass with the hash-marks around the case??
