Part 2453 appears in two variants, 2453a Brick 1 x 1 x 5 - Blocked Open Stud
or Hollow Stud and 2453b Brick 1 x 1 x 5 - Solid Stud. There's also an entry
for 2453 Brick 1 x 1 x 5 (Undetermined Stud Type).

The inconsistency exists because 2453b didn't exist until 2009, and yet many
of the sets that include a 2453 Undetermined Stud Type in their Bricklink inventory
came out before 2009. Logically, since the solid-stud version didn't exist,
sets from 2008 and before must have had 2453a.

This inconsistency is hurting sellers who choose to specify the stud type in
their listings. Since so many sets include the Undetermined Stud Type in their
inventory, those part listings are selling at a much faster pace than the ones
with 2453a, likely because of people parting together old sets, many of them
valuable pre-color-change sets, using the Bricklink inventory.

And to offer -- I'm willing to submit the changes for each pre-2009 set
from 2453 to 2453a if I'm assured that the changes will be approved.

I expect when they were first split it wasn’t clear when the transition was.
We found that out by correcting inventories. At this point I think an admin could
go do a lot of it. Such has been done on some other pieces.

Every set pre-2009 has been updated to include 2453a.

Based on the addition date to the catalog I think we can add 2453a to sets up
to 2010. I remember that 2453b was first reported in summer 2011 and added to
the catalog in January 2012. It is only in sets from 2009 and 2010 as an alternate
that would have appeared in later production runs of those sets.

I was just playing it safe. I always like to leave a bit of a gap just in case.
I will be looking around the 'net over the next couple of days to try and
remove more sets from the 2453 entry.

27 sets will be very manageable.
