Help please!
We have two Aku Aku, Las Vegas mugs, but they have a different font on the undersides, I have done research but cannot seem to find out which one is the oldest one, can anyone help please?
Thanks.

Aloha!
I'd say the mug on the right with the even and straight font and in the middle of the base is the older one.

The remnants of the old small foil label from the manufacturer, OMC, is also a good sign. This label was on most of their items that were manufactured in the company's early days and can be seen on many Tiki Mugs from the same era. I think the company started around 1961 but not 100% on that.

Hope this helps a little.

You should have asked..."which of the two mugs is better?" answer: the one on the left
