I went through my collection of figures and came across a red torso of which
I can only presume is from Classic Space. I noticed however that it doesn't
have that gold layer over the planet.

Was it common for the gold to wear off on these sort of figures, or is this torso
from something else with a similar torso print?

Very common to find these with the gold worn off.

Very common for the gold to wear off. In some cases the white rubs off too leaving
just a red planet (I say "red" because I've not seen this happen with any
color torso other than red).
