Skip, I should caution you against making (or believing) such a definitive statement, which is ABSOLUTELY impossible to prove.

What Pete said was that the highest number presented by SRS was such and such. There is NO way to tell, absent a contemporary record so stating, that any particular arm truly was THE last one.

Statistical formulas will tell you that, given the number produced, range spanned, and average interval between recorded specimens, that "x" numbers must be allowed for, BEYOND the last number reported.

You absolutely ARE very "near" the end - which I'm sure is below 568000 - but it is not, IMHO, as clean-cut as you stated.
