Numbers 31.52 – Incidental reference to seven

After the Israelites returned from fighting the Midianites, Israel had to do certain things with the plunder, and Numbers 31 says this,

And all the gold of the offering that they offered to the LORD, from the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels (Numbers 31.52).

This does not appear to be a significant or symbolic reference to seven, but an incidental reference.
