For anyone who might be interested and who watches the auctions for such things,
the sealed mono butcher cover currently on eBay as item 160768155419
IS DEFINITELY A COUNTERFEIT.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/160768155419

The back cover is the wrong paper stock.
As can be seen in the shots of the corners, the cover is not folded like a Capitol original.
The shrink wrap is not correct for the period.
The font on the spine is wrong.

The album may have come from the same batch as this one on popsike:
http://www.popsike.com/The-Beatles-Yesterday-And-Today-LP-Butcher-Cover-Sealed/230415250105.html.

Since it's a knock-off, I wouldn't pay more than about $20 for it, but I guess people like having a "placeholder" in their collection. I mention it here because the seller appears to be unaware that his copy is a counterfeit.

Japan turned out some beautiful repros a few years back. This is probably one of them.

Several issues jump out at me as being a repro, including the fact that the cover is not textured.

Do you think the seller is aware of this? Has anybody notified them about these problems?

In the old days, before Ebay blocked out the bidder info, observers would have been sending messages to the bidders. Now, possibly, the winner will get the information when he leaves feedback and everyone can see who he is. As it is, I sent the seller a link to this very board conversation back on March 25th; the seller obviously doesn't care whether or not his merchandise is authentic.

I also contacted him about the authenticity with no response. When I didn't get an answer I sent a complaint to Ebay, but a lot of good that did. Was definitely going to send the winner a note when the feedback is left and we can tell who won it. Major flaw with Ebays compaint department..............

Actually just talked to a real person at Ebay and reported the sale. According to them, they will take immediate action but couldn't say what that would be...................
