    My copy is transparent brown when held up to the light. Are there any others out there like this?

      I think I have the second variant. On my copy, the matrix is a little hard to make out after "TML-M" on side A and after "STERLING I" on side B. It is hard to read what it is but it kind of doesn't look like "A 3 A" and "A 6 L", however, I can see for sure that on side B, "A1" is crossed out. Has anyone else had this problem?
