Thanks for responding Lars very kind of you.

Yes just a sticker on the back of the card, can't tell from the front so suppose would have been mixture of coo s

Thanks again Lars

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: Image

I had a quick look around : viewtopic.php?t=27360 so staff is the one with the big circle in the top (V3): Image that's associated with the 'Made in Hong Kong' figure. The perforated punch confirms it is not a Taiwan Bib.
Here's a non Tsukuda 65B https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Star-W ... 7675.l2557 same perforated punch, same staff and you can check out the footpegs confirming it's a "Made in Hong Kong" figure. ( will have chest plate with no EPMs/circles on the inside (V1))

But there could be other Tsukuda Bib MOCs?

Great idea to place the correct variant on the correct card. I wish there was more info or a guide about which variants that can be found on which cards :D

Had a look through my figures and have a Taiwan Bib and a HK Bib
HK Bib has the V4 staff with it so no joy
Will source a made in HK with correct staff at some point



Thanks James for all of the advice much appreciated
