United Nations Security Council resolution 874, adopted unanimously on 14 October 1993, after reaffirming resolutions 822 (1993) and 853 (1993), the Council expressed its concern at the continuing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh, in addition to the inviolability of international borders and the inadmissibility of the use of force for the acquisition of territory, and called upon the parties to observe the ceasefire agreed with by the Government of Russia and OSCE Minsk Group.

876 is the form you have to fill in when applying for a Transit Visa for Australia. Hopefully, you don't also have to fill in the first 875, especially as this form is for stays of no  more than 72 hours. Ain't bureaucracy a wonderful thing...?

AD 877....Hincmar, Archbishop of Rheims crowns Louis the Stammerer King of the West Franks in the church of Compiegne. (King Louis swears the Coronation Oath - eventually!)

878
is another nice, palindromic number.
Also, Urban dictionary entry no.878 is “daje”, Roman slang for “hurry up”.
Daje, Helen, daje... or you'll have to edit again.

I have jiggled my legs 879 times in the last half hour(Restless Legs Syndrome) (worst in evenings).

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

The 12 factors of 884 are 1, 2, 4, 13, 17, 26, 34, 52, 68, 221, 442, and 884. (My God - I'm boring!)

Certain Rihanna spent
885 euros
on designer underwear and Google thinks I'd like to read about it. This means all the paranoids can sigh with relief: Google may be tracking and storing your every move, but they apparently can't analyse or apply that ocean of data.
