I have the same early and late Green/White cartridges. (LC 70 and LC 92). So, I’ve always assumed the color was no mistake or error. Otherwise you’d have to assume that they forgot the first mistake and repeated it again 22 years later. I have three of the '92 cartridges and all have the GM bullet so, again, I have assumed that to be the only difference from the earlier ones which were GMCS.
A lot of assuming going on there ;)
You should know by now that you have to speak s l o w l y when there are Norfolk chaps around. ;) We have the same problem here in the US when conversing with rednecks from Arkansaw. No offence intended Jim. No one can be compared with an Arkansawian.
As to the three colors - I have seen others like that. I’m assuming again but I think it’s because the first coat of green didn’t take too well and so they double dipped. Maybe someone out there actually knows?
Ray, Point taken re Norfolk & Arkansas, maybe they are twinned ? ;)
Would they got to the bother of double dipping ?
I’m not sure at what stage the tip colour gets put on so don’t know how much a pain in the bum job that would be to dip them again.
