Default UK Strawberries...

How many copies of the UK Strawberry Fields picture sleeve were printed back in 1967? To avoid what happened with the Beatles 1 question I'll give you 2 numbers, and the desired number is somewhere inbetween...

5,000 to 500,000. It's also a round number, so nothing like 231,874

Nobody has got it right yet, although Cecilia is the closest.
