Ramisis G1 vs. Ramisi5 (G1)

Postby greenwolf86 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 1:45 am

Does anyone know how to tell the difference between a G1 Ramisis and a Ramisi5? I read that the i5 didn't have the placenta marking or numbers under the pyramid layers, but others stated that their i5's still had the placenta marking. I'm trying to pick up an i5 and there is a G1 on ebay here.

I sent in a picture of mine to the info email. The Pic only showed what shows in your pic, the front of the pyramid. The reply guy said it was a g1 just from that pic alone and that he could upgrade it at the shop here to a g2. Not sure why one would want to, but I really don't know the difference aside from G1 being harder than G2...

So something about those front markings has to be a dead give away. Perhaps some of those older owners were mistaken?

Yeah, that little circle with lines on the top layer is the "placenta." The Ramisi5 doesn't have that mark, and the G2s show GII on top.

You said some do. And the video of the first handmade batch all have the marking as well?
I'm just saying, something doesn't add up and until they do it will be hard to distinguish IMO

Anyone know why one would want to 'upgrade' a G1 to a G2 via repair (aside from breakage that is)

Great find!
Part way down that post Karen says that the Ramisi5 actually has that spelling error (?) engraved on the puzzle :(
Looks like we both must have a normal Ramisis.

Mine has no other markings at all, so its either a ramisi5 or one of the first batch of hand mades or a mistake. Every bit of reading I've done says all the rest of the G1 ramisis have the markings under the layers, including some of the confirmed ramis5 ordered originally.

Or I just have a very rare mistake. Meh. Happy regardless as I'm not selling it, I'm solving it and collecting it! At 1/4 ish the new price paid for it (going off of now pricing) I think I got a bargain!

Hi there,

Got myself a Ramisis (Ramisi5?) few days ago on ebay. I'm trying to find marks under each layer, on each corner, but I don't see a thing (all smooth). On the front, it's says ''Ramisis'' so....I have...?

Thanks for the help!

Cheers!

I wish there were some better info, maybe its as simple as it is what it's label says but I don't even know that for sure. My G1 copper ramisis has a 9 digit serial. That's about my only indicator it was an early (ish) batch, hopefully a harder one... I have not opened this one yet though to find out..

It's also a copper (showing under the pyramid it's a 10 digits and Sonicwarp.com).

How can I know it's a Ramisis or a Ramis5? One thing's for sure, I don't know at all the orientation of each layer, except the 2 top ones. :roll:
