David Broadhurst writes (2 May 2009): 
BLS tests were performed with factorization fractions of 26.68% in N-1 and 8.61% in N+1, permitting a proof by OpenLenstra. Because the index 2521+2520=71^2 is the square of a prime, this Lehmer primitive part is also the unique prime in the Lehmer sequence U(P,1,36)-U(P,1,35) with P=V(2948,1,71). At time of proof, it was the largest known unique Lehmer prime.

Verification data:

The Top 5000 Primes is a list for proven primes only. In order to maintain the integrity of this list, we seek to verify the primality of all submissions.  We are currently unable to check all proofs (ECPP, KP, ...), but we will at least trial divide and PRP check every entry before it is included in the list.
