so far i received 11 postcards from the official postcrossing. and i all have the twins number.
example: 7955 (the 5),6995(the 9),6562(the 6), etc

but i also got some unique numbers like :
PT-5656 from portugal, and DE-9889 from germany and sent ID-1 as the first postcrosser from Indonesia & ID-88 a lucky number according to chinese beliefs

how about all of you?? did u get some unique numbers too?

Have tried to catch some special Austrian numbers for the last few weeks - always miscalculated, sometimes even by one digit.

Yesterday, finally, I could catch a nice number again:

AT-264264 will go to Ireland

How do you actually know what the latest number is for your country? I think the only way is to request new cards and hope for the best? But maybe I am missing some information for this.

my method:
- do some maths with the IDs you get (Austrian cards per hour/day/week)
- do some calculations when the ID you hope for should be around
- save open slots of cards you can send
- when day/time is here that you calculated, ask for an adress (or two or three or eight)
- have luck

unlike the major player, Austria has 150 cards a day approx., so one can do some strategic calculations at least. but of course it does not work with guarantee.

to get a picture of your country, you also can do a request on 'explore' and check the latest registered cards from your country (that's more for the long stretch if you wait two weeks or more for a special number)

In the past few days I have received US-4086488 and 4086489. I know you can receive consecutive "sends" pretty easily, but I've never had received before!
