Your customer didn't apply any updates, including security ones? 8-(

Anyway, according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian_version_history#Debian_8_.28Jessie.29
you are looking for a 20150426 datestamp.

http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20150426T134616Z/ seems to be close.

For the exact contents of the DVD you might want to ask the Debian Release Team.
BTW, starting with Wheezy (7), there are only two numbers in a version, so in
a strict sense there's no 8.0.0.
