They only do it with standardized products (like those that have registered UPC codes), so that they should be indistinguishable. With matchbox cars, any 1 car box is entirely indistinguishable electronically from another 1 car box, as all 1 car boxes share the same UPC (as well as 2 car boxes and so on). Collectors now refer to buying from amazon as 6 bullet roulette, because it is now virtually impossible to actually get what you think you bought.

If there was a chance of scarring there was no way I was having it done.”But he had the procedure carried out on a test patch and then booked a full course of treatment but kept it a secret how much it cost to remove his blushes.The man, who doesn want to be named, had six treatments to make the tattoo no longer visible to the naked eye.”All I can say is that the whole process was amazing,” he added.”There is no scarring, and when friends who haven seen me for months come over, they always notice something is different.
