Bar Stamp Buzzzes?

I see them for sale for like $30. Why are they valued more? What stamp is this exactly?

I am interested in this as well. Buddy of mine lost his in a pond a few weeks ago. It was a sad day.

Bar stamped are the early runs of BuZzz, they were literally a modified version of a wasp mold (no/lot less bead) and they say WASP inside the rim where a current BuZzz says BUZZZ.

Are they really all that better than a production Z BuZzz? Not really.

But they are great.

Why do they cost so much? People really like them, and they're hard to find. In fact if you do find one these days it's probably sky blue in color with red or white stamp. I have 3 of those that I grabbed when I was cash rich for a little while last year.

not all bar stamped buzzzes will say wasp underneath. they are just stamped differently now, i'm pretty sure that has been the only change...the stamp. people love oop stuff, even if it's only a stamp

EXACTLY this^^^^^^^

They ran the bar stamp for a couple of years after they changed the Buzzz mold. Paying a premium for oop discs is silly, paying a premium for a stamp is just plain foolish.

Bar stamp buzzzez share the same stamp as the first run. The first runs have a slightly flatter shoulder.
