Even the early operation by them with their own calls was accepted a long time ago, while they were there.
Not sure what you mean by "not credited" for DXCC on any bands.
It wouldn't be "credited" (or awarded) to your account until you applied it to your account. It should however show up as "selected" for being applied on LOTW.
I got the card but don't see it in LOTW as yet.
