I am not going to accept these requests as of right now for the following reasons:

(1) The image that you posted is from a series of photos that show no sealed
bags. There are also many parts in the image that are assembled along with one
lone 4073 in trans-red next to the two on sprue. Therefore, for right now, this
is not the best evidence and is inconclusive.

(2) Although I trust you very much, I cannot make my decisions concerning the
parts on sprue based on you remembering things correctly or not.

(3) I am trying to establish a very firm timeline for the 4073s on sprue. As
of right now, my timeline stretches from 1984-1991. This set is a few years outside
of that current timeline, so I don't want to add in any information yet that
is not concrete.

I will leave this request open as I search for more information.

Thanks for your understanding,

Randy

It was already down to 1980 as my request for 7750-1 is accepted. I submitted
requests for few other sets from 1980 too.

For what it's worth, I went and checked one of my 1992 sets that the box
had torn open (but the parts were still sealed). The 1x1 plates are not on the
sprue. An interesting thing to note was that even though the 1x1 plates were
separate, the molding pip was not on the stud like more modern examples.

Yep. I am finding the cutoff point for the 1x1 round plates on sprue to be around
the 1992 period. I have found one set so far from 1992 with the plates attached
to sprue, but most of the sets from that year are looking like they are without.
Thanks for the backup data, though. Every little bit helps. Would you mind letting
me know which 1992 set it was that you checked?

Cheers,
Randy

Josh,

Please also check the catalog included in that set from 1992 that you check.
The catalog may tell that your copy was from 1993 or later.

Please don't pop the seals just for this. I would never ask anyone to do
that to their collection if they were not already planning on it.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Randy,

My brothers had already some Lego, but they didn't play much with them...
all from before 1979. (They are older than me)
but my parents also bought few sets for me. In few sets, the bricks 4073 came
with sprues and I remember them very well (in total I got less than 10 sprues).
Would you accept if I submit them?

Note: got 2 when I was a kid, still have the sprues. One of the sets I remember
set came with sprues Also: several round plates broke very easily (side) as they
came from the sprues

I am not going to accept these requests as of right now for the following reasons:

(1) The image that you posted is from a series of photos that show no sealed
bags. There are also many parts in the image that are assembled along with one
lone 4073 in trans-red next to the two on sprue. Therefore, for right now, this
is not the best evidence and is inconclusive.

(2) Although I trust you very much, I cannot make my decisions concerning the
parts on sprue based on you remembering things correctly or not.

(3) I am trying to establish a very firm timeline for the 4073s on sprue. As
of right now, my timeline stretches from 1984-1991. This set is a few years outside
of that current timeline, so I don't want to add in any information yet that
is not concrete.

I will leave this request open as I search for more information.

Thanks for your understanding,

Randy

Hi Randy,

My brothers had already some Lego, but they didn't play much with them...
all from before 1979. (They are older than me)
but my parents also bought few sets for me. In few sets, the bricks 4073 came
with sprues and I remember them very well (in total I got less than 10 sprues).
Would you accept if I submit them?

Reza -

Thanks for wanting to help out, but I will not be accepting requests concerning
these parts based on memories right now. I will let you know if that changes.

Cheers,
Randy

This set is before the beginning of your timeline, so should certainly have them
on a sprue. As far as I remember in the earlier sets they always came on a sprue.
Somewhere around 1990 (give or take a few years) they no longer came with the
sprue.
