The R was only in production for only 3 years. Each year with a different city ring. 001, 010 and 011. I would suggest from simply followings incomings that the first year was the lowest supply.
Production period for the R was much shorter than the Y and J and shorter even than the P. As to numbers, who knows. 🤷♂️
