Ok, this is primary source info, so take it for what it is... interprate what you will.... An added note... low numbers may mean a unit is rarer than another, but it does not mean it is automatically more desirable.... Although in the Case of the S.A. Sharpshooters... I would buy em! :-) on a couple of units i have subtracted 1 or 2 men of the roll, just so I can see where it is from if it turns up elsewhere...
