Is this a legit or aftermarket 101 screen?

    I recently stripped down an ags 101 that looks like it had been stripped for parts, but there is a working backlit screen in it.

    Is this an original screen or a 3rd party one?

    I think it’s oem. The placement of the sticker and tape. Can we see the back?

    I looked up a video of an AGS-101 teardown/screen replacement, and from what I can tell, that ribbon with the two solder joints in the front are only on OEM screens.

    Reply is a month late, but better late than never, I suppose.
