I bought the blue one Ray had, depicted in my post next to the one sold by a European dealer. To me these are the textbook blue ones. I've had others identical going back 25+ years. In fact I think the one I got from Ray is one of mine as he got it within a year of me trading mine off to a dealer who I think he may have gotten it from. In hand it's textbook, even with slight age fading. The ink stamps on these are light but there.
