I have this copy, but I can't figure out where my album is "numbered." Help?

There is an release that is identical besides the numbering/RSD cellophane sticker.

The Music On Vinyl press was limited to 1,500. It has the gold sticker with their logo on it. The huge record store day US release (this one) is more than 7,000. I have #7,757. Oh and it sounds great!

#6645 here. I bought it to listen to. So I don't know why all you guys are upset. Shouldn't be buying records for an investment, that's no fun.

#2162 in Pomona, CA. Thats pretty weird about the +5000 number but good since prices were starting to rise for this and 'Congratulations' quite a bit.

The reissue is hopefully not pressed at United like the original. Serious quality control issues. The reissue is from original tape vs hi Rez digital file as with the original. Mastering equipment has improved and techs can retrieve more clarity from the tapes than in the past. Look no further than most Mofi and analog production reissues. Many are superior to the original.

Well if you listen to the first pressing of this album, it sounds like it's sourced from the same master as the CD release. I have to turn the volume and especially the bass up to really hear it close to its potential sound. It was also pressed on standard weight vinyl which probably didn't help. This version is definitely louder and mastered way more appropriately for vinyl (it sounds great man!). Perhaps this has been a long term plan from Columbia - release an inferior LP only to plan a remaster a few years later; this all falling in line with the resurgence of interest in vinyl. Doesn't sound like a too far-fetched marketing plan.

The run of 1500 was for UK or EU I think.
I saw probably 30 of these yesterday. Judging by the high #'s, 10000 or so may not be too far off...perhaps maybe 8000?
My copy is #0067 in Memphis, TN.
This sounds so much better than the OG press - hello bass end!

That's weird, according to website, limited to 1500:
EDIT: oh wait, I have a different bar code. That's even weirder
My stamped number says: MOV 000452, MOV is from 'Music On Vinyl'
