Subject: What does the golden flower stamp signify? rss

I just acquired a random selection of Limited Edition cards. Some of them have a golden flower symbol stamped in the lower right corner of the picture. From the consistent orientation of this stamp, I think it was done automatically in production rather than by hand afterwards. Does anyone have an idea what it signifies?

Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you. What I can confirm however is that no such stamp appears in the "Unlimited" edition, or at least in the 2000+ cards that I have collected.

So perhaps it is a Limited Edition signifier and you have some Unlimited cards mixed in? I don't know, just a theory.

I, too, have 1000+ cards and have not seen that.

Chap I got them from thought it meant they were Preview Edition, but those have gold or silver borders.

I have not seen that on my cards. Could it be an "ownership" stamp from a collector that was mixing cards in with a friend's collection.

Hmmmm,

Possibly yes, but as I say the angle of the stamp is very consistent so looks more like it was done by machine. Also, it is a very neat job. Thanks for the idea though!
