2-1B Medical Staff Original V1

 

2-1B Medical Staff Original V2

Added to the guide in 2016, the V2 differs from the V1 because of the presence of an EPM on the handle and a dent present on the uppermost part of the staff. These details have now been noted on several examples.

The original Amanaman Staff SINKS when placed in water!

The original is cast in Brown Plastic with painted Skulls.

 

Amanaman Staff REPRO V1 (High Quality)

Note: this repro floats in water where the original Sinks! This is the most effective way to tell it apart from the Original.

This Repro also has marks along the seam and is cast with Brown Plastic painted skulls (same as the Original).

Bib Fortuna Staff REPRO V2

This repro Bib Fortuna Staff is more rigid than an original. (This repro copies a V2 - top staff, centre hole.) The colour of this repro is a Glossy Brownish Grey; the inside material similar to a Revell plastic model. This repro staff snapped when a small amount of force was applied.

 

 

Bib Fortuna Staff REPRO V3

This repro first appeared on the market in November 2014. It comes from Mexico and is made from resin. It sounds like an original during the drop test but fails the float test and will sink when placed in water. This staff is very flexible when new but will harden with age and become brittle - easily breaking into pieces under pressure.

Chief Chirpa Staff REPRO V3 Lili Ledy Black Staff

This repro first appeared on the market in November 2014. It comes from Mexico and is made from resin. The staff attempts to copy the Black Lili Ledy V4 staff that was issued with the Lili Ledy Emperor. As can be seen from the comparison photo it's difficult to tell from an original. The staff sounds like an original during the drop test but fails the float test and will sink when placed in water. The staff is very flexible when new but will harden with age and become brittle - breaking into pieces under just a small amount of pressure.
