Doesn't look normal to me... I would contact Valve if it bothers you, it might be worth of an RMA...

Hmmm, are you talking about the light colors that look like a staircase?
well, you could try contacting valve if it's really bothering you.

yeah I can see what you mean, it looks quite different, on the bottom diagonal of the deck...

It looks like there was a stencil over the components in the manufacturing process to protect them and the rest came in contact with something else (chemical, UV light). I've had 4 Decks in my hands so far and I haven't noticed this on any of them - and I'm picky.

yeah well, while that is indeed sad, maybe if you don't want the hassle of maybe returning or exchanging the unit, maybe you could just slap on a nice cover, like this one from the article below:

besides that, it has pros too, like anti slip and protection too right? 😁

or maybe you could just add a skin to cover it up like these, after all, having a different color style would be cool too right?

I also found this other site just as an example. 😋

Don't be sad! Its a one of a kind collectors edition! :ROFLMAO:
Well then, if you look at it from that perspective, then wouldn't it be like those yu gi oh misprinted cards that actually became "rare" collectibles? 😉

here's some info just in case, for context.
