picked up this loose dengar

you will notice one odd limb. not unusual too find mixed limbs its very common infact

this particular example shows us 1 x matt purple/grey leg and the rest of him gloss light purple.

while photographing it i noticed underneath the odd limb foot is 2 subtle light scratched letters C and H

if a child were to mark a figure one would assume they would use a pen. so what this done at factory production? or was it child's initials? mmmmm

interesting.

the fact there so subtle marking im thinking factory

what do you think fellas?

From the picture, the "c" looks scratched in, and the "h" looks like faded marker. I tend to lean towards child marked.

i never thought about faded marker aspect it does look v smooth and i cant feel any indentation. the c is clearly scratched in maybe a kid pressed hard into the plastic for the c and not the h.

That all sounds pretty likely guys but the paint variance does make it a little more interesting. Seems like a weird thing to do at a factory too though right? Or is there presidence for that kind of thing?
