Thanks, Tonny. This looks like it could be an error. You are the first person in 12 years to spot that. The information came from a number of different sources. I will have to revisit the sources to see if I can work it out. Perhaps others can post any feedback here, too, if they know the exact numbers?

Most places it is described as 700 the first year, like you do to begin with. Fore instance here.

I have now changed to the list with 1246 the first year on my site. I found this article in VIPS number 1.
