Trade duplicate KLM houses in lounge 52

From the TA website:

KLM-huisjes ruilen in Crown Lounge 52 op Schiphol
World Business Class passagiers van KLM kunnen sinds 1 januari 2017 hun Delfts blauwe huisjes omruilen op Schiphol. Fervente verzamelaars krijgen hiermee de kans om hun collectie compleet te maken. De huisjes kunnen tot eind maart 2017 worden geruild bij de servicebalie van KLM's Crown Lounge 52. Een speciaal bordje op de balie geeft dit aan.
Ingeleverde exemplaren kunnen worden geruild voor miniaturen van andere verzamelaars.
Alleen de huisjes die in goede staat verkeren worden bij de ruilbalie geaccepteerd. Ook dienen verzamelaars rekening te houden met de mogelijkheid dat een specifiek huisje na verloop van tijd niet meer beschikbaar is. Klik hier voor een korte video over het omruilen van KLM-huisjes.
Short translation:
Through end of march 2017 passengers can trade their duplicate KLM houses, provided that the original house is in a good condition.

What is stopping them from replenishing their supply?

If the lower numbers are the earlier ones, they should be more rare, no?

No, they do reproduce them every year. The lower number ones are very easy to find. Usually the newer ones fetch a premium for a while, as they haven't been produced and distributed for years.

Well, if you know where the inspiration for 'genuine Dutch Delfts Blauw' comes from, Taiwan may be more genuine

Have they prolonged this and can one still exchange dups in the Crown lounge or did it indeed just run for 3 months last year as indicated in the OP?

Most of my KL biz class flights were back in the days when I flew Northwest a ton. Always ended up redeeming for KL flights. Here's my modest collection.
