Thanks.

So, it is the coloration of the letters, not the tail
feathers that distinguish the rare from the ordinary?

FYI, the variant with the red A/B letters is harder to find. There are 6 Kellogg's cars on eBay right now and only one of them has the red A/B letters.

If I have it right, Tyco was the first to do the silk screen process
that allowed for mass production of Bill Board cars, it was a patented
process. Looks like other manufacturers got on that band wagon?
