FOUR known factors, known for 15 to 39 years. Mfactor can find the smallest in under a minute on one core of an old slow Xeon E5645.
Code:
Searching in the interval k=[0, 16336320]
Each of  16 (p mod 60) passes will consist of 1 intervals of length 272272

Factor with k = 68745. This factor is a probable prime.
MM(31) has 1 factors in range k = [0, 16336320], passes 0-15
Code:
MM(31) has 1 factors in range k = [0, 16336320], passes 0-15
Performed 505654 trial divides
Clocks = 00:00:54.206
Excerpt from http://www.doublemersennes.org/history.php:
Code:

Coincidentally, today is the 39th anniversary of the smallest factor's discovery.
That was just a few months after the beginning of commercial sale of the original IBM PC; several years before the beginning of creation of http. So news of it would have spread by number theory mailing lists.
