When did the insignia transition from the brown enamel to black?

The firmest number I have heard on the transition to black was 1948. However with that being said I have seen some brown in use in Korea. I suspect they were phased in 1948 with a drop dead date of XXXX? Kind of like today where there are a few years transition time.
