These model numbers seem to have been issued largely in order, with a few notable exceptions.

Numbering appears to have started around number 1230, with lower numbers largely used for bicycle accessories originally.

Sets available in different sizes were usually numbered consecutively: 20 and 35 Yule Lights were model numbers 1271 and 1272 respectively.

Mini Lights were given out-of-sequence vanity numbers: the set of 20 was model 1220, while the set of 35 was 1235.

Renumbering

Several older sets were given out-of-sequence numbers when they were redesigned. Usually (but not always) this saw 100 added to the original model number. For example, the earlier version of Glitter Lights had model number 1251, but the modernised version with detachable shades was numbered 1351.

Towards the end of the 1980s, a few sets that had been updated to use push-in bulbs were renumbered into the early 1200s - for example, 20 Mini Crystals moved from 1337 to 1202 and 20 Merry Lights moved from 1242 to 1203.

Duplicate Model Numbers

Pifco appears to have routinely recycled model numbers, with some light set model numbers also used for other products before or since.
