Bringing this back up and gonna pass on part numbers in case someone else may need them. In Columbia Tn. we have a parts store that's been there since 1932. The son of original owner still operates it. Took old seals in and got that way. I've trial fitted them and are correct.
Nat 4711835 Inner $8.63 ea
Nat 4722924 Outer $11.43 ea
As Rich says pinion is common. I haven't gotten it out yet so haven't purchased it.
Don't know how many years This diff was used in Studebaker Trucks, again passing them on.
Ebay vendors have inners priced at 24 to 26.00 each.so needless to say gald I didn't pull the trigger on them last night, but I was close.

If the Old Parts Store had those Outer Seals in stock and did not order them from a Warehouse they may be near or THE last available.

If I remember correctly the felt that goes in the outer rear seals is also the same as used in the timing cover on champ engines! Studebaker knew how to save money
