This set was originally inventoried from "Parts List", and the thin string was
added as an alternate pretty quickly after the inventory was created (just a
few months). Also, some basic errors were corrected just a few days after the
inventory was submitted.

With that information, and the fact that we can see the thin string version in
sealed set contents, I think it is pretty safe to say that the thin string version
was always the correct one. I am going to remove the medium string completely
once your changes are accepted.

Cheers,
Randy

Also, the images from that sealed set with the thin string also show all of the
older versions of the other parts that are currently listed as having alternates.
Therefore, that set is probably close to an original production run and that
makes me even more confident that the thin string was always included from the
beginning.

Cheers,
Randy
