How to find limited edition certificate/nbr for sl500

Hi there I am new to this forum so please excuse me for sounding a bit....
Could anyone tell me how I can get a copy of the certificate that came with my car originally, showing it was 1 of 100 limited edition SL500 FOR 2001 signed by Sterling Moss ? either that or can anyone let me know if there is a way I cant find out which number my car was of this limited edition run? Is there an online vin reg I can access that would show which number my car was if the vins run sequentially ?
Would appreciate anyones help on this please.
Thanks guys

From my understanding that was the certificate that was signed. I am not sure if MB can get Moss to sign another one,

If the certificate is lost it was organized my MB so I would contact them. I do not know if they can make another certificate, but they can certainly send you a letter confirming the information you are looking for and tell you what number of the 100 it is.

You cant get one, I tried every avenue, even had someone at merc head office try,

you have to contact the supplying dealer, they will have the ? / 100

I do have a copy one, that looks brill, if you know your Ltd Edition number, I can edit it and send to you
