    X000787 is my lowest. I nabbed em for 220$ a few years ago off the bay. Interestingly enuf they were unopened from the box and when I opened them the lenses werent as purple as all the other first gens ive seen. They were almost old "fireish" like the first gens.

    Hehe thx, but in reality there is really no evidence to support these serial numbers went on in order. What I mean to say is that if I had a factory you would simply have different areas for making the different parts an assemble them at the end for efficiency. So when the left arms were made, they were probably serial numbered then and there, shipped to assembly, and the rest put together in no real order. I wish these were a part of the first thousand made, but I highly doubt it. Thoughts?

    Yeah i see what your saying and you could be right, but as a collector the closer you are to "1" the more collectable the piece is. See what I mean.
