1984 Duke: First Sergeant
Duke came with a couple variations. The earliest mail order versions of Duke came with a helmet without holes in it. The carded release of Duke and later mail-in versions of Duke came with a helmet with holes. Also, there are two variations of Duke's backpack. One has a cross on the inside, the other does not. Each of these variations can be seen below.
Duke was available as a mail-in offer in 1983. This mail order Duke came with a small American flag sticker. In 1984, he would be released as a carded figure with part of series 3. The carded figure did not include the American flag sticker. The mail-in Duke had a close up picture on his file card, while the 1984 carded Duke had a wider shot on his file card (seen above).
