I have recently bought this item on Ebay
Can you tell me anything about it?

I have searched the museum, but could not find anything.
It looks like a white plastic Supernova.

Sigurd showed me this the other day. It looks like a combination of wood and the plastic that they used on the original Dominos.

I have asked the seller (Hungarian), He said, that it is old, (long time in their own), and fully made of plastic. And it is not casted or hand made.

And yes, the plastic looks the same type as the old Hungarian Dominos.

Oliver, your supernova seems to be a cousin of the white supernova I posted about in this thread (although yours is unpainted/unstickered). It has also got the mold lines on the pieces which indicate that it is from an early production (see my comment about this in the post I linked to). :-)

Thanks, That thread is very useful.
I have different versions of ssupernovas in my collection, but I never seen one with this color plastic.

When I will receive it, I'll post more pictures.

Oh so it IS a SuperNova? My initial thought was also this, because of the mold lines.
