    Printing Error Edition. This is an unintentional variant of the regular chromium cover edition. Due to variations in the application density of the white inks printed on top of the chromium background, in this printing error variant some areas that should be white instead appear yellow, cream, or beige colored. This is particularly noticeable in the Valiant logo box in the upper left corner. Contrast this with the Gold Edition, which has a speckly gold background in the Valiant logo box.
