We will not lose, for the sake of our research. If we win this, we will successfully obtain all 68/69 Red White Hikari-Go Sets in existence until an unknown one appears in the future.

Oops, it is actually 1972, G-19. I did not see that side label. Red White 2nd Generation Hikari-Go was still manufactured in 1972, I overlooked it.

Does that mean the Team is not going to pursue it anymore?

Still will pursue, it is an unknown set not found in the internet when the set name is looked up. Must be out of the catalogue range.

These ones too, they are basically the same sets but I'm not sure whether the cover design is different. The inner box is completely different.

It seems that they share the same box cover. However the change of generation in Red White Hikari-Go and the slope rails in the sets have set an assumption that:
1. The sets are reprinted.
2. It is a completely different set in the early 1960s and late 1960s.
3. It has a different box cover art.
However we are not able to confirm point 3. It seems that the set itself have different generations, because the TP-nn numbering systems are DIFFERENT from the previous set compared to new set. How we know that the TP-nn numbering system is different without the box cover? Its because the same TP-nn number has not been found on the 1st and 2nd generation Red White Hikari-Go 3 car sets (they have different numbers). The set is not reprinted, but point 2 is correct so far. The very possible reason why the interior box change:
1. To fit the newer contents better.
2. Produced from a different plant.
3. TOMIYAMA change name to TOMY in 1963, therefore blueprints of newer sets might have been slightly altered.
