On the backglass, do you want the kid's hat to have a C symbol or the W
(Williams)?

Mine has the "C". Most will have a "W" sticker on top of the cap. If it is
a sticker of a "W" , then scrape it off. (Like I did)

When Whirlwind was in production (in 1989) they made a lot of backglasses
with the kid having the Chicago Cubs on the hat. Well, needless to say,
Williams/Bally jumped the gun and DID NOT get permission to use the "CUBS"
hat (on the kid) SOooooooo......., the pins that were on the assembly line
got a sticker over the cap and then the backglass got the modification of a
"W" and the rest is history.

Thanks for the info. I was looking at mine, and it looked like a 'w'
sticker was put on it. I will take it out to remove the sticker.
