    There seems to be a gap between AGR and AHN (21 missing).
    There are no catalog numbers 30480-30499 that I can find. This would account for 20 of them, but I don't know where the other one would fit.
    
    By my count, there are 817 debris objects from 1999-25 from catalog number 29716 thru 30650. However, note that SpaceTrack says that the first one (29716, 1999-25E) has decayed, meaning that right now there are 816 cataloged and in orbit.
