it's a bell standard and belongs to the doctor himself, who is also a collector
he is willing to sell it for 2.5 lacs which i guess is a li'l too steep

the stars were usually given at every 100,000 KM... so thats 600,000 Km... less than a million kilometers, let alone miles.
six million miles would be about 9600000 Km.

Agree -- it must be 600,000 km. 6Million Km would require almost 70years of driving everyday for 8 hours a day (365 days a year) @30 kmph average.

That aside -- very nice example!!
