There are huge amounts of these wallys kicking about. Toni didn’t make this one.

Re: TT being creative or a real mis-card?

The bonding gap is a clear sign of a legit seal, but many factory seals have no bonding gap as well. This particular Vader also has a bubble placement not typical of a Toni, the bubble is much higher than he would have placed it. And I just spoke to Kathy at Vectis about the Vader miscard. It was wi...

Re: Question On Cardbacks

Some just werent sealed well in the factory or by Toy Toni, so the bubbles leave little or no imprint when they come off.

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

In the lot of 13000 unused cardbacks that Toni acquired after the Palitoy factory was cleared, 45B's are the earliest card listed. To me this indicates earlier cards were assembled in HK as none of the loose cards have surfaced. All of the Palitoy 41 back cards have a K or S factory code on them to ...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

Great thanks Jason that's really helpful. So trying to piece this together, cards up to and including 45a were produced in Hong Kong. Were they assembled there too or sent to the UK to be assembled? And 45b and onwards (excluding some anomolies) were produced in the UK at Lithographic printers that...

Re: Looking for info on Palitoy Cardback Production

I believe cards to and including Palitoy 45A where printed in Hong Kong Factories, and then the ones from Palitoy 45B (and German/Clipper ESB) and after were printed in the UK (excluding factory code variations like 45cg, 45cn etc which were still printed and assembled in Hong Kong). No proof cards ...

Re: Helix ruler 1977 (ask for pictures)

I just know some guys are into the Helix stuff, so maybe it helps prise something Lyons Maid loose? I’m always happy to make up cash or balance a deal out either way. Sometimes dangling a small carrot is all thats needed, as I have met a few guys with Lyons Maid that only wanted trades. I was offer...
