What I don't like is that Fascinators in between the horizontal lines is on a slant.

The ink used on the label looks off. Kind of matte, the lettering between the lines is off, IMO. Cant say for sure without it in my hand, but if that was at auction, I would pass.

Sloppy printing, but it looks real. Would need to see the Dead Wax etchings to verify.

I'm going to speculate that this, too, is a counterfeit. Look at the top of the label and the two notes that look like pp. Normally, these are filled in on original Sun labels, just like all the other notes around the ring.

You might also look at thge disc for any tell-tale signs. If the grooves are packed closely together where there is little bass /low volume and then spread out where there is high volume / plenty of bass, then the disc was cut on a modern-day lathe with automatic variable pitch. Old lathes did not have this facility and so the groove was cut at a constant pitch (and varied by hand where necassary), where the distance between grooves is constant no matter how loud or soft the passage of music might be. (Look at a 1950s LP and a modern day LP and you will see what I mean). A clever countereiter might go to the trouble of bypassing the automatic variable pitch but then they would have to know about it first.

Yours may be a label variation. I would dismiss your record as re-pro straight away if were not for the "lowered" middle ring on the label.


Where would that put this?
