I just received an e-mail from Mercury:

Thanks for your interest in our eyes. The cost for #450 blank white 
with metal washer is $.18 each. The minimum order quantity is 500 
pieces. The cost for #650 blank white is $.21 each with metal washer. 
The minimum order quantity is also 500 pieces. Our terms are COD or if 
you want to avoid COD charges, a check in advance of shipment including 
shipping charges. We will include a catalog with your first order.

business. You get two drifferent stories.
