+ There are exactly 73 primes, beginning with the prime 1093 and ending with the prime 1613, where 10932 + 10972 + ... + 16132 = 117072. This is the first instance of a prime number of primes comprising the left member of such an equation. [Haga]

+ The smallest prime whose digits are reversed in base 22. [Haga]

+ The content editor of "Prime Curios!" is credited on page 73 of R. Crandall and C. Pomerance, Prime Numbers: A Computational Perspective, Springer-Verlag, NY, (2002 printing), with noting that 61 divides 67*71 + 1. Note that 61, 67, 71, and 73 are consecutive primes! [Haga]

+ There are 73 composite numbers under 10^2. Proof: 73+25 primes = 98. There are 99 numbers under 10^2, but 1 is neither prime nor composite. This is the only instance of a prime count of composites through 10^22. [Haga]
