Its picked up the number -->

They claimed it was an unused wedding gift but it had 6252 clicks.

Its picked up the number from a memory card - if they'd put a card in from a Fuji camera with 6261 clicks on then the X100's first would be 6562 . this happens all the time when you send stuff in for servicing , I call it the file counter Virus . if an X100 had done 6252 clicks then you'd SEE that in the camera itself, the writing on the buttons would be missing for a start (a prob with the X100 and Panasonic M43 cams) ..

This Drives you nuts with Nikon cameras because unlike Fuji, canon, Oly, Panasonic etc, you can't just reset to Zero then rename 0001 to your current shot count (such as 0252) , it'll just make another folder and start at 1 again if you try .
