    It is easier if you look at the country origin. The most common Leech figures are from Hong Kong (maroon bow, no country marks on figure or bow) and Mexico (red bow, figure is marked Mexico and bow is marked USA).

    here is the maroon bow in MOC figure marked Hong Kong on the back of the card




    and here is the one with red bow, marked Mexico on the back of the card



    Mistery solved!

    I'm in the US, and when I got Leech when I was a little dude back in the 80s he had a maroon bow. I still have him; if I get the chance to dig him out, I'll check the country stamp, though I'm pretty sure he's NOT from Mexico (I got a Mexico Leech later and the paint job on his head is way different).
