A new estimate of the size of a closed population when the samples are of size one is considered. It is adapted from Robbins's estimate of the total probability of the unobserved outcomes of an experiment and is interesting because of its high efficiency. The bias and variance of the new estimate, and those of the maximum likelihood estimate, are examined numerically.
