I could be wrong my friend, but I believe Hasbro are the earlier of the two, and Hong Kong being the later editions probably too cheapen production costs. I am sure that if I am wrong (and please do) another member with more knowledge than me will correct my information Very Happy

There were some very early pieces that were made in Hong Kong.  Production geared up in Japan, then in 1966 it switched exclusively to Hong Kong.  You can generally tell how early a piece is by the tag:

early 1964
GI Joe TM No Country of Origin

1964/65
GI Joe TM Hong Kong
GI Joe TM Japan

1965/1966
GI Joe R Japan

1966 - early 1970's
GI Joe R Hong Kong

mid 1970's
GI Joe R Taiwan
GI Joe R Hong Kong (nylon tag)

Yes, most agree it's the rarest.  Apparently these Okinawa items were done in the homes of the sewers and a person would come round to collect them.  It was an interim measure the first year that didn't last long.
