numbered collectibles ?

I collect a few different things. Some of them are limited pieces. What is the psychology behind wanting the lowest numbered piece possible. Many of the items the number is on the packaging not even on the item. Even if the number "1" is on the item, there is a good chance that, that piece was not actually the first produced but rather just the piece that got marked as "1". I am happy just to have a limited production item.

Humans tend to like 'nicer' numbers such as smaller numbers (more familiar) or numbers with patterns (like 111111). Just because we encounter them more often.

One common example is picking lottery numbers, ppl will think its weird when the winning number is "111111111" or "123456789". But its actually not weird at all, all numbers have an equal chance of winning, its just that we recognize numbers with patterns more than random sequences.
