Hi There Folks:

I have a guy interested in an old 1977 C3PO and was asking about markings on the underside of the feet.

Does anyone know what he is looking for? What are these markings and what would it mean if there is markings (or not for that matter).

Is one version more rare than another?

Just looking for some expert advice.

Much appreciated!
