Hi all,

I was looking through some of my original ("farmboy") luke figures, and I noticed one saber had an upper-case "I" on the hilt - well, it's really just a line like this: |. Anyone know what this means? I couldn't find it on the main TIG site saber page.

Thanks in advance!

Early single (& double) telescoping sabers have lettering on the hilt/tab. These are mold identification marks so the manufacturer could identify faulty molds if defects were produced. Lots of possibilities exist from A-Z & AA-ZZ Shocked

Funny, yesterday I noticed that some of my Ledy Darth Vader sabers also had a "I" or "II" on their hilts.
