Someone probably let the acid machine on overnight by accident and they ended up with 12,000.

It's really no big deal at all but I am pretty sure they do start everything at 1 and go up from there(I have had some pretty low numbers). But they also stated that there was only to be 150 STPL frogs released too and in reality it was way over 1000 of them. I personally have never been one that just bought something because it had a serial number or there was only such and such of these made. If I like it.... i buy it. I don't buy it with the fact that it might be worth more down the road because there were only so many made. IF you like it buy it! lol

Same here, I only wanted to know out of curiosity. If you look at my collection there's a lot of them that I don't have/know the serial of.

Bhaley, you really think they made over 1000 STPL Frogs? Any clue on the STPL Eyeshades? Those were supposed to be limited to 150 too, right?

I'm not sure if the number on the label is even a sequential count anymore. It's just assumed that because the X-metals, TBs, and Icons used to be sequential, it would still be the same now. Maybe it is and maybe it isn't, but no one's really convinced me it actually is for non-serialized product. Even for the serialized stuff, I haven't received product recently that has matching serial with box label. I think the last one I saw in person that had matching numbers was the Artist Series Montefrios. For me, the C6s and TBII didn't have matching numbers, but admittedly that could be a box mixup somewhere along the way.

Further to what I said above, here's a tag label for a CF C6 which reinforces for me the idea that the numbers on it isn't a direct count. If a label sequentially numbers the production, there would be at least 944 CF C6s out there, which I'm sure we all highly doubt.
