Some characters maybe 'rare' and I am not a specialist with Canadian cards. I suggest sending Commander Clint a message just in case there is 'gold'

Re: Tsukuda Question

If you look carefully at punch holes/hang tabs you can often tell the factory code. ie. Taiwan is unperforated. You just match it up with an unstickered version. You can also look at pegholes and work out the figure mould family: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/users/3011/13/96/10/album/sdc12915...

Re: Is this ESB punch hole normal?

Always good to compare punch hole to factory code. For most 41 backs there are two types per factory, that one looks like one for Unitoy. A full picture of the back of cradback will confirm.
