BACK Empire Strikes Back Kenner 45 Back A: Productionlike Proof

Seen here is the "Productionlike" proof for the Chewbacca 45A back. It distinguishes itself from the "common proof" in a few ways. It is of thicker card stock, has four rounded corners, and has no punch cut.

This piece is considered rare, even for pre-production materials as it may be one of one (or two) of a kind. The other proof like this contained in the Chewseum can be seen here.

The colors just seem brighter and the lines seem cleaner, though that may be psychological.
