Nikon D60 “Black Gold” still a mystery

Our last guess about the Nikon D60 “Black Gold” got busted today by an email from someone who works for Ritz Camera:
“Okay, Here’s Ritz promo kit procedure for those who are convinced the German photo is all Black Gold will be. When a promo kit is created, we get the big outer boxes as a separate shipment. The boxes do have a SKU, but it’s a store supply code. We then pack the kits ourselves with regular stock merchandise. The code I found begins in 54, which is lenses, cameras, and large accessories like motor drives. Note that a lot of stores don’t even use the boxes for the obvious reason- they’re obnoxiously large, and the customer only sees them once they’ve decided on their purchase and we bring them out of the lockbox.

To the guy who claims he’s seen the German kit ad in a Ritz- Wrong. All stores will usually get the next one or two future flyer ads to prepare for them, and occasionally they get left on a counter accidentally for a customer to see, so I don’t doubt he could have seen an unreleased ad. However, The current and future D60 promo kit has been going on off and on since the camera’s release, and contains the following: Body, 18-55 VR, Two Nikon School DVD’s, and a black Nikon gadget bag. It’s not the bag seen in the photo, and thats a fact because I spent 15 minutes this Wednesday unpacking two cases of the damn things.”
The search for Black Gold continues…
