The number contains one instance of all the digits in the Base ten counting scale in alphabetical order, by definition this can only occur once!

Tough one. I'm pretty sure it's not Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, or Spanish, although I'm not certain of alphabetical order for a few of those languages. I was hoping your member profile would give it away, but no such luck. :huh:

It is the only integer between 8,549,176,321 & 8,549,176,319. This may sound dumb but it's true.

Well, I think that doesn't make it a special number. Probably, you could say a unique integer number ... the special "thing" shows the number as some property other numbers don't have. From the previous posts, I can see that "The first letter of its english names are in alphebetical order."
