Hi all, I'd like help identifying this puzzle. I know it is a Ghosthand puzzle because it was my main when i walked away from cubing years ago & i remember it being phenomenal then but it feels genuinely terrible compared to today's hardware. There was a version I, version II, and 2003A produced according the wikipage. This was most likely purchased this from Cube4u circa 2008-2009. Both the edges and corners feature a single cap that pops off to reveal a hollow piece.The edges corners and centers all have stamps in the plastic that say "(GS)" on the top and a number "1", "2", "3", or "4" on the bottom once the center cap is popped.
I plan to give this cube a face lift by applying either Cubesmith supercube stickers or some custom Cubsmith shades i have that only fit older puzzles. I regret taking the original stickers off to make an F2L only cube because the original stickers had such a retro and faded look that i wish i could recreate.
Any ideas what it is? Bonus, what lubes work well with this plastic, you can see all the old residue most likely from RC car diff fluid.

Dude great idea. I've pretty confident its a "V1" after searching the Youtube archives. I really want to find one for sale now...every time I see this on the shelf i have regrets of puling the yellow side stickers off.Your best bet if you really want to know is to watch youtube videos from the 2009-2012 period when people showed off the mechs. It is not a v2 since those had very prominent ridges on edges and corners. See

Looks like it to me, but I’m not 100%. I’m like 95% sure.
It’s probably from a little later than the ‘80s, since I doubt Rubik’s had a website that early. My guess would be late ‘90s to the early ‘00s.Can someone tell what era this Rubik's brand cube is from based on the logo? My mother gave it to me as a gift, presumably it's from the 80's since it was hers. It is definitely old & think doing a full solve on this might be as hard as running a marathon; This thing is HARD to turn! There is no center caps on this puzzle, the centers are a single solid piece.

I think it's an air S.I have this cube that I've had since I started cubing, I think I accidentally stole it from my friend. anyway, I'm 99% Sure that is a Gans cube, it's about 55.5 mm, non magnetic, and is at least 3 years old. (During or before 2017) It has a track on the corner, and some on the foot of the corner, and the edge has none. It has what I think is GES nuts, and idk what pictures you need so I will just include all of them that I took. here's the link https://ibb.co/album/jbBqdW
Edit: it weighs 76 grams
