  1. That is good information, thanks. There is 2 things going on with my question. First I am trying to rebuilt my long forgotten sets. After 20-30+ years many pieces are lost or brutally damaged. I want to replace them with as close to original as possible. If I wanted modern new parts I would buy from Lego directly right. And as a collector point of view if I ever want to sell them I want to sell the right stuff. I'm curious to know if others feel the same and if sellers are mindful of that. Also I have friends letting me have a look at their inventory to replace parts but it's all mixed up in bins. If I want to make a good offer I need to know where the parts are coming from. To me a vintage piece is 1975-1985 (the era I'm looking for). So I think it's safe to say that most changes occurred after that.
  2. Hello all, this might be a tough one. As I'm trying to sort all my old bricks and figuring out which sets they are from I noticed a big difference in the bricks. The "vintage" ones are perfectly flat inside and the inside studs are not attached to the face (red brick). Some have holes inside the studs (yellow brick). When was this change occurred? Is there any way to differentiate the plates? The history of Lego doesn't tell you this lol. Thanks.
  3. Thanks a lot, I must be doing something wrong because I searched for all trans-clear pieces from 1960-1990 and it did not came out.
  4. Hello everyone, this is my first post. I have search through the parts database and the sets at Brickset and I cant find this one. I have 4 of them, probably from late 70's and I would like to know which set it is from, as I'm trying to sort all my bricks after all these years, thanks in advance.
