Thank you for the reply!

It would be interesting to know more how you know? How about the 1/4" flaps? I don`t recognise them from BeatleHarb website. Is there a difference between mono and stereo with that?

Quick question...are any bootlegs worth more than others? I have to copes of "Introducting", both of which are boots...one from the '70's with a very obviously out-of-focus cover and with a heavy vinyl record with a rainbow Vee-Jay label... I recently picked up another for $10, which is (obviously) worth what I paid for it, but it has a label which is more reminiscent of the original releases, but the cover is definitely bootleg...it passes the "Honey" test, but George casts no shadow and the hands on John's watch are illegible...

The question is, are any boot variations worth more than others?

Found this one at a tag sale last weekend for 2 bucks.
After reading this entire thread and the eskimo site as well, I'm still not sure if I have an original.
2 things that stick out is 1). the width of the colorband is not uniform (see pic) and 2) it looks like the label is "painted" onto the vinyl (not a paper label). Not sure if that was how they were made or not. It has Love Me Do and P.S. I Love You on it with the small 45 size label. It has the Audio Matrix and MR stampings in the deadwax.

Original or fake?
Vinyl and cover are VG. If an original, any idea of value?

I seem to recall someone saying that the dead wax should be an inch wide from the label to the last track.

As for the color band, I have read that the things to look for are a fine graduation between colors and no missing colors. Also, I recollect having seen VJ and Capitol color bands on non-collectable records lacking uniformity in width.

That's the much rarer authentic '45' label pressing. The plant ran out of LP sized labels and so had to use 45 size labels to keep production going. They're very hard to find in both versions, but the LMD pressing is especially difficult to find. Awesome buy!

Thanks BeatleHarb. I had a feeling it was a good one, but you just confirmed it for me.
I'll put this right alongside the copy of Songs, Pictures and Stories of The Fabulous Beatles I found over the weekend.
