Can anyone tell me what the actual production numbers were on these? Billy states that he has number 001, etc. With reportedly only 100 made, why is mine #106? did they start production a bit higher than 15697-001?? I’ve seen a 112 too. What gives?

Mystery solved! Per BZ:”They made 50. I have the first three. The Tribute model serial numbers are not consecutive. They started at one, not sixty, but they skip around. Joe says it’s so the dealers won’t fight over who gets the lowest numbers. 106 is somewhere between the third and the fiftieth.” Thanks Billy!
