Received mine today, for receiving 10, 15, and 25 MHz on 06 July 2014.

Interesting tidbits:

The one I received has a s/n around 280 greater than yours. The one I received on 5 Sept 1991, is about 2900 earlier than that.

Assuming no gaps and serial numbers increased normally, that's approximately 126 QSL's per year during the past 23 years, yet in the past 3 months, they put out ~280. Perhaps due to 25 MHz.

The card I received today is the exact same style as that received in 1991, and John B Milton is still the engineer in charge as he was in 1991. They must have a huge stack of these things... It still refers to National Bureau of Standards, instead of National Institute of Standards and Technology.
