Do you get excited about lettered sabers? I do. I'm not one to want to collect every iteration of lettered sabers, but I like the idea that they can give a sense of time for the figure. My DT Luke has an "A" saber, and that tickles me. I also have a malformed Vader saber where the "BB" looks like "BP" and I have a lettered Ledy Vader saber (P). Are the lettered Ledy Vader sabers in any way more desirable or considered rarer?

For fun, try saying Lettered Ledy Vader Saber really fast 3x in a row.

I once picked up a lot of first 12 figures on the Kenner display stand. The saber that Vader had was the letter 'A' version. Yes it made that purchase a bit more special. A really good haul at a great price back then. I also remember the figures were all dead minty apart from Luke and R2 which were yellowed to hell
lol!

I like lettered lightsabers, anything lili ledy will be more desirable IMO
but I don't consider lettered ledy sabers rare either, just not as many as the kenner ones

I think the letters add a touch of specialness to the score when you bag a figure and you can see that figure coo is an early one too.

Does any one know if lettered sabre hilts are unique to a single factory or company (e.g. Unitoys, kader, smile, etc.)
