Morris W. Beck Naval Covers

 Why are there different quantities for all the covers in the 1000 cover series?

For each new ship event, Morris W. Beck serviced the number of covers he had on hand from collectors that left covers "on deposit" with him.  For example, the 1962 Independence Day series consisted of 201 covers, including the Enterprise cover, and many collectors didn't haven enough covers with Beck for the entire series. All 201 covers were postmarked on July 4,1962.  

I remember how his service worked and it seems like I often received postcards from Beck stating that my cover supply was running low.  Sometimes I sent covers right away and sometimes it took several weeks for me to find time to send them.  In the mean time, Beck just serviced and sent out covers for those he had on hand.  He did not maintain a supply or inventory of back issues for sale other than those he created for his own collection.  The covers for his own collection usually had his name machine printed on the front of the cover.
