I don't understand the point of this discussion.
The OP asked if anyone had ever spoken to Jeffries about his decision to make the Constellation's registry number 1017, based on the possibly false assumption that Jeffries had anything whatsoever to do with that decision. He wants to build a replica of the model, but wants to know what the registry "should have been," the consensus of which seems to be that it should have been exactly what was on the model as seen in the episode.

Then, much to the OP's dismay, the topic segued into exactly what class the ship was, based on the (IMHO) slight differences between the AMT model kit and the large filming model, and the low registry, even though official sources state (and the intention of the producers was) that the ship was the same as the Enterprise.
