I just got a new addition to my small collection, a pyraminx. It's nothing special, I know, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of pyraminx it is or when it's from. It's black and the colors are yellow, green, pink, and blue. The stickers have a sort of lined texture on them. I think it's pretty old, and it's definitely dirty inside. I'm going to clean it later, and get pictures of my whole (small) collection. I have to rebuild my ES 5x5x5 and then I'll be in good shape.

I've got a couple "original" mefferts from around 85 or so. They have stickers like you described, but not pink. Is it color fading, or is the pink original color? There were some made in Taiwan, Korea and Russia around the same time that are identical to Meffert's except for the stickers.

It could just be faded, if I look carefully they don't all seem to be the same shade.

I'll have pictures up later today, after I rebuild my ES 5x5x5
