Original tester of n~=10k range

Does anyone know who originally tested the n range around 10k, and when? Currently, Jean Penné is listed as the discoverer of n=10227 on the CRUS Liskovets-Gallot page, but given that n ranges much higher than that were tested on this k many years prior to the start of that effort, I'd like to find the proper original credit if we can. -happy5214 10:40, 2 April 2022 (UTC)

All 300 < k < 1000 were done by the Primesearch project in those days. An old entry from 2007-11-30 of my pages shows the range done to n=260000 and the first 24 primes found. So this value should be known before the CRUS-project. Karbon (talk) 09:25, 3 April 2022 (UTC)
Interesting. All three of the Top5k primes, n<260k, are credited to NPLB, but are north of n=75k and were found 2001 or later. Is there even a still-living record of primes found before 2001? -happy5214 13:26, 7 April 2022 (UTC)
All old primes credited to Primesearch on Top5000 were moved to NPLB after this project has taken this range and doublechecked them with many missing/false primes. Karbon (talk) 07:40, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
