They symbol isn't very obvious, here are the clues:
"The Number of the Beast" (1982): bottom right of the front cover, between the devil's left foot and some flames
"Piece of Mind" (1983): rear cover -- to the left of the padded door near the top -- a disembodied hand holds a chain with the symbol as a
"Powerslave" (1984): rear cover -- upper right side -- at the foot of the first image on the wall
"Somewhere In Time" (1986): front cover - on the breastplate of "Eddie". I think this is the album with the most obvious display of the symbol.
I also think its flashed very briefly on the video for "Wasted Years".
"Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" (1988): front cover - just to the left of where Eddie's spine touches the water. The symbol is very small, white,
and faint, but does cast a reflection on the water. I think this is the last album which has the symbol.
I have "Fear of the Dark" (1992), and can't find the symbol anywhere. I think it is the next studio album after "Seventh Son...", but am
not too sure. This is the last I.M. album I have -- Bruce Dickenson left sometime after "Fear...", and later returned, but I haven't really kept
up with their new releases since 1992.
