    Back in the day .I was really into apes still have them all.the one thing I noticed between Cornelius and Galen besides the card is that the Galen heads have shiney paint apps and the head is slightly smaller and harder.every Galen I have ever seen on card never had a brown scroll plate viynal . always burgundy.although I have seen him with brown viynal on the arms.the majority of galens were type 2 bodies .while Cornelius were majority type 1 .I have seen the Galen description I mentioned on Cornelius cards later in 1976 .so it's really a matter of close inspection using all info from the galleries and people's experience .and pics on eBay and anyone who is selling a Galen.

    Also about the ears.earlier Cornelius figures had light brown ears .but in 75 a lot of corns showed up with the green ears and burgundy viynal.the head is most best way to tell.

    I'm confused by that statement. what is it that confuses you? I have carded versions of both on T2 bodies(I think)

    I think he's saying that he's a bit OCD that his carded Burke and Verdon don't have matching body types. And I do understand that thinking, I'd probably be the same way about it.

    Yup, pretty much.
