It's an out and out counterfeit.  Have to admit, I sold mine for £150 but I said I'd never said it's my all time favourite NS record but when this guy offered me £150 for a £5 pressing, I thought I'd be mad not to take it.  I would want £100 for it now myself.

It's a great record Pete. I love the under produced feel and the really innocent, girly lyrics.

You can't use those words on ebay as your listing gets deleted

I had the same problem with some prototype Corgi's, took me ages to figure out how to describe the bloody things, all I wanted to do was sell them quick.

If they weren't real Corgi's would 'Mongrel' have not covered it???

They were Corgi's, but didn't go into production, came out of the factory as one off pre-production prototypes, all from the 60's.  Had 30+of them, bought them for £10 each, cheapest one sold for over £300

For a start, it's on vinyl, there may be original vinyl demos but every copy I've had has been styrene, the counterfeit has some light bubbling in the run off, kind of pitted marks, also the print definition isn't as sharp as it should be on the counterfeit.

what would an issue be worth?had one in my hand about 6months ago,i`d only seen demos before that

 

I didn't think it existed until I someone sent me a scan about 12 years back, I think Tim Brown has it....got to be 2 to 3 grand?

On the counterfeit matrix number the 6 and the 2 are both looped with tails whereas on the original the 6 is more like a 'b' and the 2 is more like erm.....a 2, I think there is more than one 2 or 6

Also another issue was up for grabs from Oz ( I think) about 3 years back. Went for over £3k. I missed it. Got a demo myself. I think the run out groove is wider on the boot as well.

Your right Steve as I bought a Canadian Paris Blues from him!

And we discussed the Yum Yums issue copy he had

That was the guy who originally had it Steve, Ian I think it is, from Yorkshire, been a long time since I dealt with him but remember him sending the scan to me

What do you mean "is this right" ? The value or the morals ?
