Haiti 1986 2 Gourdes Tyvek Propaganda Overprint

***This unusual banknote must be one of the most popular banknotes ever printed on Tyvek among collectors.
This banknote carries an overprint to celebrate the fleeing of Baby Doc from the Haitian's power throne where he was, like his old man, supposed to be President For Life.
The suspected protagonists behind this Overprint must have been the Haitian exiles in Miami.
It has been mentioned & quoted many, many times that ONLY 250 pieces of this 2 Gourdes note exist. Is this accurate? If it is indeed true, then, this banknote must rank as the fewest ever issued in the world and would, thus, cost a bomb in years to come!
Somehow, this might be true as one has not seen this note being auctioned on eBay or elsewhere for a long, long time now.

Haiti 1983 250 Gourdes SPECIMEN

***A now highly-demanded 250 Gourdes banknote from Haiti printed on the-now-obsolete Tyvek technology, suspected to be issued between 1980 to 1983, most probably in 1983.
What is the current ongoing market price for this banknote? The Krause catalogue doesn't seems to be of any help.

***The months of waiting and trying to get hold of the RM1 super-solid banknote bearing the Serial NOs of AAA1111111 must have been a trying time to some collectors.
Well, no one will ever going to get the above banknote in their collection.
I suppose the next best affordable note would be ABA1111111.
