hammerhead variant question

Postby spoons » Sat Feb 24, 2007 11:57 pm

A question for the variant collectors out there:

is this just the bog standard hammerhead? He's got no COO, black eyes and they are looking to the left

The eyes are looking forward in my opinion so it is worth slightly more than a HK one that looks left.

The hardest to find is a no COO looking right !! :wink:

thanks Craig, but its a misleading photo - he is looking left. Is it still rarer than the HK one?

No COO ones are harder to find, or at least they were as I haven't bought one for a very long time. The best thing to do is look at some current auctions to see what's available right now. :wink:

Here's mine:

Just realised my descriptions are wrong !! :oops:

The no COO is actually looking to his right and HK is looking to his left !! :lol:

by your standards mine is a no COO looking right - I assumed the direction of the eyes was from Hammerheads perspective :oops:

nice Hammeads anyway 8)

ooh yes my fave :D

Spoons i would say that he is a looking left. but in the photo he looks like he is looking straight ahead the direction is from the hamheads perspective ie his left or his right.

heres mine 1st pic left to right eyes left no coo, one left one ahead, eyes left HK, eyes right
and 2nd picture, eyes ahead, one left one down, no eyes, white eyes and black eyes.

I love your hammerheads Mash - especially the no eyes ones 8)

I've realised that the eyes front ones are all slightly to the left, so Craig was right about mine.

So I have a no COO eyes front and a HK eyes left. Let me know if you want to buy one.
