Does anyone know how many copies of this are in circulation? I know The Black Album was limited to 2800 (according to the Mela Foundation website), but I'm having trouble tracking down the information for this piece. It costs about 3 times as much as used copies of The Black Album, but I don't think math exactly applies here.
