I have one as well, for as far as I can see the paint has worn nothing at all, pretty much perfect.

What is the state of the paint on yours?

Great :D

I do find them quite regularly on Ebay still, and not too expensive either, so I don't think they are that rare just yet.

But hold on to it :)

I have a painted one as well. From what I've seen, it seems about 1 in 10 or 1 in 20 are painted. I have heard they were a second or later edition due to complaints they were getting about the movement of the puzzle causing the stickers to peel.
