I'm following what you're saying.
Is this what you mean by diagonal notches ?
Yep. Notice how the dust accumulates in there more than normal. It's like the notches/corners are slightly deeper so the stick doesn't bottom out as much. Even though this one is quite heavily worn.

And where the top two diagonal corners meet the smooth surrounding of the case that's where the dent in the molding is.
Hi, I have two controllers with this style joystick. Both are made in China Japanese greys that I imported from Japan last year. However I moved one over to a black PAL controller (I harvested one for parts).
The actual bezel is a different shape from what I can tell, not just the top left and right indents, so I believe these earlier controllers are just from a different mould rather than it being a production error. I've taken photos comparing the shapes of them to the sticks on an Ice blue controller. Will upload tomorrow.
