The seller had attached a printed nameplate so it displays a little better, but I personally don’t like that. My idea is to either display it as it is, or buy Dengar backing card only, and slide it in behind in an acrylic case. What would you do?

I'd display it as it is, its a good bit of history with the name plate cut out.
If after a while you don't like it, try it with a dengar name plate/or card behind it.
I wonder what 'bounty hunter' they got in the mail in offer?

I’ve done the same thing myself, looks so much better.
But I suspect that there will be collectors in both camps.
Nice pickup by the way!
Cool Dengar, for a great price as well! Surprising how good It looks with the printed name plate. I draw the line at name plates removed on a MOC, although if a POTF Anakin came up with name plate removed I would probably change my mind.
Not sure I like the idea of sliding a card in behind it, I would probably leave as is.
I thought it was a proper bargain. A complete one with ink touch ups went for £1400 didn't it. This is sealed. The figure & bubble would grade C8 for sure. We're all vintage hunters, and I would not be comfortable looking at it and knowing that name plate came out of someone's printer. At the same time, being honest, it does slightly bug me to look at it and see straight through. My eyes keep being drawn to it. I think I will definitely keep an eye out and if a backing card shows up for the right price, then I will definitely go for it. I checked on eBay and last one went for £32. If I could get something for around £15-20.
