Using the guide above, is your Jawa not a 20H?
The only thing that I am unsure about is how “official” this guide is!

Loving all the MOC goodness, again that Boba Fett with wrong gun is some find. :shock:

As Nick says the Jawa is a 20J back, identical to a 20E back but with the red sticker extending the offer until 12/31/80.

Darth Vader is a 21B back which is nice to see as well.

The 20H back does have a red sticker on it but extending the offer until 3/31/80. This cardback is identical to the 20G back the red stickers are a different shape!

12back.com is a good guide as well.

Is that the one that was on ebay for ages? I couldn't believe it wasn't snatched up long ago and a great price, if I hadn't got one already I'd have had it ages ago. Well done buddy.

Thanks Andy, I thought it was fairly new to the market but I must've only spotted it after it was relisted. I'd actually been after something else and this popped up as a suggestion from eBay which is unusual as they normally suggest you buy a toaster :lol:

One of those moments you dream of happening on this piece, newly listed BIN with offer and the seller accepted a cheeky offer straight away. Then a fraught few weeks waiting for it to show up - and hopefully undamaged, knowing the bubble on these are prone to splitting in transit.

Absolute stunning condition, almost case fresh, easily one of the best I've ever seen with hardly a scratch on it.

I don’t think that I have seen a better Tie Bimber, congratulations a real grail piece.
As I said a few days ago, some stunning new items, the summer lull is most definitely finished! :D
