    It would've been easy to spot if the card hadn't been ripped.... the punch hole on vintage cards is off-center to compensate for the figure being on the right, thus making the card hang straight. On KO cards, they're in the center of the card, making the card tilt if you hang it up.

    Does it matter? That's a pretty high price for such a damaged card!

    Indeed. Especially since the card may have ben damaged specifically to hide the key tell for a KO... :p

    It's a KO the original/real Beachcomber never had an Autobot symbol on his chest (even though the box art shows it).

    Yeah I was just thinking that the damage to the punch area might have been deliberate to hide this particular difference between authentic and KO.
