The shutter count is stored in the exif data of every image the camera takes.  You can use a program such as exiftool to check, or use an online utility such as this one:

Yes, the number of each frame can't be higher than 9999

but the sequence number is kept in the metadata, Mike.

I read that Mike :), I did not get anywhere in the literature 
that it was absent but that "metadata readers" were not 
capable to access the info until recently.

I did wonder about that

The shuttercount is hidden in the maker notes that few applications used to read. This has changed relatively recently. It used to be that exiftool and PS were the only widespread apps that read the full EXIF.
