Default w555 question

I know the w555 are classified as a strip card but where they issued with candy or something else?

Using "search", there was a good discussion on these a while ago. Some of the photos have expired though.

Steve,

I have seen those pictures before, but one thing I had never noticed is how white the back is. I have never seen a W555 with a back like that. Wonder if it was some type of prototype.

Mike

Yes, the backs of these are sh!t tan/gray.

Pictured is a laser copy (one side) of the original box on modern stock, for purpose of demonstration, I believe.

if this is the case the w555 should be classified as a candy card instead of a strip correct

Turn around, walk away and forget you ever uttered a word about this.
