I am still trying to get a hold of letters G and K for Kenner one peice sabers. If you can help with these letters please contact me, would be super happy to finally finish this run off. Thanks
Here you will find an almost complete list of alphabet letters which appear on the early flat tip lightsabers,
all of these are the single one piece lightsaber and not DT, (DT saber lettered
patterns explained below in the comments)Lettered
lightsabers are the earliest lightsabers, and would only have been packaged with the Kenner SW12 backs.
Have also seen them in a few SW-A baggies.
(EDIT 24/12/15) It is also my opinion that after many years chasing these, that you will not find the letters OO through to ZZ on the single one piece lightsabers , the double letter combo seems to stop at NN on the single, this applies to all three colours. If anyone has any of these double letters on a single one piece lightsaber, please show a photo of it.
My collection concentrates on Darth Vader lightsabers only, but this list should also apply for Luke Skywalker, and Ben Kenobi lettered
lightsabers. The same mold was used only the colour changes.Lettered
lightsabers can be a single letter, ( A, B, C, ) etc, or the same letter twice, ( AA, BB, CC, ) etc.
This list consists of the letters I have tracked down so far, but it is worth a note, that all letters from ( A to Z, ) and ( AA to ZZ, ) are possible.
Single letter A to Z lightsabers may or may not have a DOT before or after a letter, I havnt gone into the Dots and letters combo's, but you can see them in the photos below
An odd lightsaber marking is the 3dot lightsaber, the dots are in a triangular pattern, and to me looks like it was intended to be this way, although some may consider this 3dot pattern to be a short shot. After holding 4 of these 3 dot sabers
in hand at the same time, the pattern of the dots is identical on all.
Same applies to the double letters BB and CC single one piece lightsabers, after holding 3 of each in hand at the same time.....
-The BB is always BP, the second B in BP is not completely formed and shows a P with a slight curve at the bottom, more than likely you will not find a BB with second B completely formed as a B.
-The CC always has the first C not completely formed.
It is my opinion that the 3 dot, BP, and CC with first C not completely formed, are not short shots. They cant be short shots if they are identical when held in quantity and they are identical.
There is also 2 notable patterns to the letter combinations,
both with single letters, and double letters, the next letter in the alphabet is on the opposite side of the handle, from the previous letter.
First pattern in letter order,
Letter A on the left side of the handle, followed by the letter B on the right side of the handle, and so on through the alphabet.
Letters AA on the right side of the handle, followed by the letters BB on the Left side of the handle
Second pattern in letter order,
When the letter is doubled, it appears on the opposite side of the handle from the same single letter.
Letter A on the left side of the handle, followed by the Letters AA on the Right side of the handle, and so on through the alphabet.
Another note worth a mention is that there is also the letter ( I ) on the right and left side of the handle.
This could point to ( possibly ) all the letters on both sides of the handle, but that would be a neverending search, if it is even possible.
The letter ( J ) is upsidedown on the hilt
If you can help me track down the few letters I still need, please see my wanted link below in my signature.
lightsabers--- (L) after the letter is for LEFT side of the handle, (R) after the letter is for RIGHT side of the handle.
-J ( upsidedown )
-BB/BP (L) this lightsaber is sometimes also called the BP, I am still to find a perfectly formed BB, on the single one piece saber. The second B is in the form of P.
-CC (R) I am also still to find a perfectly formed CC on the single one piece saber. The first C is always not completely formed
LILILEDY from Mexico also adopted the lettered
lightsabers on some of their lightsabers,
LEDY lightsabers can also have no letters.
The letters on LEDY lightsabers are on the Right side only.
This is what I have so far for lettered
lightsabers from LILILEDY, again it only concentrates on Darth Vader.
-O or -Q ??
The letter P can also be found on LEDY lightsabers for Vader.
The search continues........
Thanks for looking.
