As per the pictures, its weird but i`m pretty sure the jet intake of one of my R1s is smaller than the one on the other pair.
Also, their frame colour is both X-metal, but I notice one is darker and 'rougher' than the other.
Is this normal or am I going nuts haha.
P.S: One of them is serial number 0****0, the other is 1****3
As far as I can tell from those pics they're legit / aren't fake, so it's likely due to the common variations from batch to batch in the casting and finishing process.
This is totally normal... X-Metals are like snowflakes; no two pairs are exactly alike.
First gen stuff is never the same....lots of flash and pitting.I think a lot of these early first gen frames had alot of experimentation.
Thanx for the reply guys! I was getting worried and wondering whether I got a fake
Oh and you reckon the value is affected?
Yes, Value definitely affected. Sell it to me at a deep discount, LOL. J/K, virtually no difference in value. Although it does look like you have too many, so I can help take one off your hands. Seriously, though. Nice pairs. Congrats.
I prefer my X Metals to have imperfections. To me, later gens look fake.
