Earliest example of bronze scale armour

I'm trying to trace the development of scale armour and was hoping for a list of the earliest finds. To avoid confusing the issue I'm using the conventional chronology even though I think it is wrong.

Is the illustration in Kenamon's tomb (18th Dynasty - 15th C) still the earliest Egyptian example?

The finds at Nuzi also date to the 15th C. Are there any earlier examples?

What is the earliest Asian example?
