    Out of general curiosity and in case anyone has the desire to share their 50th anniversary box set serial numbers, I thought I’d start a thread as release day beckons...

    As a long time Beatles fan and owner of various versions of the 1968 classic album, I know the numbers aren’t indicators of the content within, but nevertheless they may provide some momentary diversion from the other debates around the new release.

    So:

    Are numbers geographically related?
    Any regional anomalies??
    Any random coincidences???

    For some reason my original 1987 U.K. double cd number 6698 makes me smile as I remember cycling all over London as I scrambled to collect all the first edition CD’s!

    Thoughts?

    Was happier with my 2014 mono LP, had a flick through the piles in HMV and got 90999 or something very similar :)

    Is your new set from HMV too? Seems to be a very wide spread of numbers from what we’ve seen so far. Mine arrived a few hours ago, number 16571 from What Records in the U.K.

    U.S. Bullmoose? I’ve seen a few in the 3000-3700 range there so far...

    I’m curious as to the geographical split of numbers. This may be a way to see how limited the set is.
