Re: first ever jem?

All 3 actually. But i guess the first to be completed of the three would probably be the green one.

Re: first ever jem?

1887 :O? No the root beer came along in 88 by some numbers, but some were also built in the summer of 87'. It's quite rare, but i've seen one with a palm rest. 1988 also brought the 77FP and the 777VBK. 89 was 777VDY, 7PBK, 777VSK.

Re: first ever jem?

Neck plates (I'm assuming you are using as your guage) were kept in a big bin and grabbed in no particular order. Yours would definitely be very very early, but not necessarily the 775th one.

Re: first ever jem?

I think this is the point where I stick my fingers in my ears and say "la la la la, I'm not listening to you"

Thanks for killing a belief I've held for nearly 21 years in a single post. Dream killer.


Well at least I can say I have the 775th neck plate off the line

Re: first ever jem?

See, I think I'm going about this all wrong. Mine could actually be the very first Jem off the line. Yeah, that's the ticket!
