Wow- my G is s/s 9934, so it's just after the change. Strange that they didn't change the sheet metal right away.

According to the later manual Type G switched from UHF (131-012) to BNC (131-277) at S/N 9480. No idea in which year that was.

the 1962 catalog shows UHF while 1963 is BNC**. I think I have a newer manual
at home, I'll try to remember to look.
There was a mod kit for converting instruments in the field. I have at least
one modded scope and plugin. Yours too, most likely, as Tek would not have
sold instruments with such an obvious bodge.
