Did you apply all these archive log between 674565 - 674627 ? Check alert log if all of those had been applied without errors.

If restore process is asking about higher sequence there is a chance that control file is a newer than data files.

Did you try with recreation of control file ?

  1. backup current control file to trace
  2. shutdown db
  3. copy current control file - just in case
  4. startup nomount
  5. use trace file to recreate control file with resetlog option

Duplication process without until time restriction is trying to restore DB to current production state
and if I remember correctly there was some issues related to that in 9i - but most of them could be solved via control file recreation.
