Numbering appears to have started around number 1230, with lower numbers largely used for bicycle accessories originally. It's not clear whether sets were always numbered in order of release, but numbers certainly appeared to be issued sequentially by the late 1200s.

Mini Lights were given out-of-sequence vanity numbers: the set of 20 was model 1220, while the set of 35 was 1235.

Renumbering

Several older sets were given out-of-sequence numbers when they were redesigned. Usually (but not always) this saw 100 added to the original model number. For example, the earlier version of Glitter Lights had model number 1251, but the modernised version with detachable shades was numbered 1351.

Towards the end of the 1980s, a few sets that had been updated to use push-in bulbs were renumbered into the early 1200s - for example, 20 Mini Crystals moved from 1337 to 1202 and 20 Merry Lights moved from 1242 to 1203.

Duplicate Model Numbers

Pifco appears to have routinely recycled model numbers, with some light set model numbers also used for other products before or since.

Third Generation: 2200-2300 and 7300-7400 series

In the early 1990s, new and redesigned sets initially used model numbers starting with a '2' - most were reworkings of older sets. From later in the decade, brand new designs used numbers starting with a '7'.
