Err...I think Perthshire made about 20 different paperweight designs for the Millenium, with editions from 200 up to 'unlimited'. So it depends which design you are talking about.

Sorry - I confused Perthshire and Caithness. Easily done if you are stupid....

I'm not sure how many of this weight were issued: I suspect 200 - 300.  I have had a couple, but cannot remember what it said on the certificates - it is an attractive weight, IMHO.

Confirmed.  I checked the original brochure and it says 500 copies.  The original price was $310 US.  So the winner got a bargain here.
