 According to our law cataloging section head, we normally class these
> according to the date of enactment, so the number in ClassWeb should be
> KNX2064.51946. In fact, the authority record for the constitution (NAR no
> 96013475) has 1946, and the legal specialist in the Law Library has
> confirmed that 1946 is the correct date.  In our shelflist more books are
> classed with the 46 number than the 47 number.  The class number was
> changed and the caption has been changed to Constitution of 1946.
