MTV-7 and other mini rig COO's/markings?

Postby Scouttroper74 » Sat Sep 22, 2018 7:35 pm

I recently picked up an MTV 7 for 50p at a car boot sale. Upon closer inspection, I found that it had no markings on it whatsoever. No Coo stamp, no patent markings, nothing!
I was wondering if this was common on mini-rigs.I only have one other mini rig (an MLC-3 which has markings). Can anyone shed any light on this? Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but perhaps it is one of the Turkish bootlegs!

I'll check my MTV but other mini rigs have no COO so unfortunately I suspect its just a regular one

The two MTV-7s I have here have no markings at all, and neither do the PDT-8 or the INT-4. My MLC-3 has full markings on the underneath though.

For Jedi rigs, only the little skiff seems to have one...

Ok, cool, thanks for the info tobeshadow. :) Seems to have been a common omission on the MTV 7 and some other minirigs then. Still happy that I got it for 50p though! :lol:

I'd genuinely never noticed they didn't have them, great spot! Maybe because of size and detailing they couldn't add them on, or they need a certain area of flat plastic to indent the mark? Always guessed they did it with a small hot press tool of some kind? 50p is an awesome price, it's the best feeling when treasure is still a bargain!!
