How many Tamron SP 200F were actually made?

I hope that everyone is familiar with excellent Tamron SP Adaptall2 lenses.
One of them is a very rare 2x Flat-Field 2x teleconverter 200F:
Tamron SP Adaptall-2 2X Tele-Converter Model 200F
till very recently I was under believe that only 250 were ever made in mid 1980-ties but I managed to get one , the serial number is 5000591
so... anyone knows how many actually were produced?

Sorry, can't tell you how many were made but I can tell you that the serieal number does not necessarily tell you what "item-number" it was in the production. Various digits may tell you (if you know the code) about manufacturer, which need not be the supplier, the year and month of manufacture, the number in a specific manufacturing lot etc.

Anyway, you are lucky: This item IS very rare and sought after:
