I hate to be a naysayer, but my 1st gens do not have screws on the inside of the metal hinges to hold the arms, they're more like rivets. Also, "Japan" is etched, while on this it seems to be printed in white....
Well I just lost these by $1. Guy bid with 2 seconds left before I could counter bid. Guy out of nowhere too that didn't bid at all, I was watching this thing for 3 days and I lost it. I'm seriously pissed off right now.

If it was someone on here that got them I would gladly buy them from you for a little more than what you paid. I've never tried to buy anything on eBay and was trying to get a good deal on these because it was a steal!
