On the front cover, can you see his feet or are they cut off?

Man one of those album notorious for massive bootlegs floating around especially the US version which has a completely different animated cover.

From memory the original presses of the album (not counterfeits) have STAMPED matrix numbers in dead wax)

Here are a couple links to recent items which offer some further details on matrix number and some great photos of the item in question. I am not affiliated with either of these and have only seen the record once but it is a nice one to have in a collection as you will see by the recent prices.

The original cover has a textured surface; as I understand it, the boot does not. I once owned an original.
