Are There 747 or 746 United States Collections on FamilySearch?

Color me confused.

The United States section of FamilySearch's "published record collections" either has 746 or 747 databases.

I'm not certain why the difference.

The thing that always concerns me when I see things of this type is "what other things aren't working like I think they should?"

Hopefully it's just some minor human error. But when we rely on things (even free sites like FamilySearch) to work in a way we think they should, it always gets me wondering about how various search mechanisms on the site work as well.

If I get an answer, I'll post an update.
