Dartington FT1 commemorative tankard-- info please

Greetings again- a 1979 Dartington tankard has come to my attention- does anyone know of the edition total on this issue. It is numbered 564. If it is as numerous as I think, I won't bother. regards carol

What's on the tankard? They were all FT1, regardless of decorative design. If its Guinness, 300. In fact that's the only one in my book I can see as a limited edition. The only 1979 FT1 design is for the Derby Centenary, but it doesn't say it was a limited edition.

My other book says the annual issues were sometimes numbered limited editions of between 10 and 5000
