When do Oberth-class ships hit their peak of service?

In the Enterprise books we see Daedaleus class ships with registry numbers such as NCC-76, 173, and 189.  Later in Vanguard, we see NCC-470 and the ship is considered extremely old.


In STIII, we see the Oberth class USS Grissom NCC-638. 


So when did the Oberths enter service?  Should we expect to see them in upcoming Enterprise books?  Would you expect to see them more frequently in the TOS and Vanguard books?  How should they compare to the NX, Daedalus, Mirandas, etc in firepower and usage?

According to Memory Alpha, the started being used as early as 2280 and slowly phased out during the 2370's

They were replaced by Novas. 2280 seems a bit late for starting service considering the low registry nunbers of some.
