    Is there a reference anywhere for numbers of items pressed, as in first Hand in Glove with Manchester 1000, or 12" in a certain country etc.

    There are people much more knowledgeable about this subject than I am but in most cases, I'd say the answer is no. For some selected rarities, will state approximately how many are thought to exist but that's just for some things such as Hand in Glove negative sleeve, Rank DAT, etc.

    If there was some way to know the exact pressing amounts for all releases, as you are looking for, it'd be really great. But to my knowledge, not really. If someone can add more info, it'd be great.

    You'd never guess
    I have always wondered what is the number printed and made for the UK 1st pressed items, like the smiths LPs. Also compared to US made pressings(also a mystery).

    My guess 1st LP 50,000, Strangeways 250,000 copies, Louder Than Bombs(likely short-printed UK version of US release on RT) 10,000 copies. 7 and 12 inch Singles ? Hard to say huh
