      How many Laser Blues & Saffrons sold in the US?

      I know Laser Blue V70R's are really rare, as are the Saffron V70Rs from 1998, but I was just wondering if anyone knows the real number of Saffron VR's in 1998 and Laser Blue VR's in 1999-2000 were actually sold? Can anyone speak to this who has an actual source, other than just, "I heard there were 30 sold in the US" kind of thing.. I dont know if this data exists or not, but I wanna say it maybe does...??

      Thanks,
