How many copies of this cover that actually still exists is uncertain, 264 is listed in Discogs collections.

According to the story is: "Chiswick decided to print 1000 copies that had sleeves that were printed on silver foil board. About 400 were used for promotion or handed out as prices in different competitions and the 600 remaining were available to the public. The problem with the silver cover was that the adhesive that was used to glue the sleeve together did not bond securely with the foil surface and therefore a lot of copies were returned and junked (Carroll 2001). That is probably why you sometimes see that only 600 copies were made. Ted Carroll thinks that only about 500 have survived. In an article by Alan Burridge in Record Collector he says that the silver foil sleeve turned out to be too expensive, which suggests that the initial plan was to use the silver cover for all copies."
