This is most probably a "holding number" put there so that there is something in the field in the database.  It will be replaced with the correct ID once the peal has been either published or a page ref found.

As did Canon Felstead, Andrew Craddock will pick up peals from wherever they are "published" and it is therefore possible that he has picked this peal up or been made aware of its existence.

Csnon Felstead was pretty thorough and I would be quite surprised if he had missed something that had been published in the RW.
