Mines not that close but still cool
Where did the squared off corners theory come from? It's so hard to tell in the photos.
There's one more left from the seller as well if anyone wnats the link.
Like I said, I have one more coming in and I'll contact you seperately thd9791 once I get it. I have a theory on it and want to discuss it with someone more knowledgeable and see if we can break this code.
Art thank you so much. That could also be a clear mask, the common shiny clear coating over the non-plug part of the boardJumping into the middle of something I don't know a lot about, but since I just snagged a nearly mint Graflex out in the wild I am now looking into these things. I have held and photographed what you guys call the Ranch Saber (Luke's ESB saber that is at Skywalker Ranch). While I can't share the photos (NDA), the corners of those gold pieces are all very squared off with virtually no rounding at all. The gold does extend, a bit irregularly, out onto the thin silver parts. The entire thin silver area appears to be covered in clear glue residue. View attachment 1369947
