I found the following in Popeye's BEISPIEL directory (stip.inp):

M. Olausson
2971v, Problemkiste 81, 6/1992, (V: PK-83, 10/1992)
(= 1+3+1N )

ser-%4 Circe
b) a4->e8
c) d7->b2
d) d7->f8

a) and c) are cooked. I found the following correction, has anyone else corrected this composition?

(= 1+3+1N )

ser-%4 Circe (
1. f7 2. b8= 3. b2(h8) 4. h8%
1. g7 2. b8= 3. b2(h8) 4. h8%
1. b8= 2. d7(c8) 3. b6 4. c8%
1. b8= 2. d6 3. f8 4. f8%

Not really a correction, but has anyone done 4 rose promotions in promotion-only form more economical than #620 in UiM?

I just found:
(= 5+4 )

= Rose, C+ with Popeye

Which saves two pieces

Such a record may prove easily overcome.
Much depends how you define the specific constraints of this "economical" task -- particularly considering that series-movers do constitute a fairy condition.

For example, Roméo Bédoni showed 6 Rose promotions, in a s#6 with only 10 units, using a pair of fairy conditions.
He also has a problem suggesting that more might be possible, without any fairy condition (simply using a semi-r+2 stipulation -- which can be written such that it requires no condition, while adhering completely to orthodox rules).

Updated the post a little bit to address which economy record I'm asking about.
