Blanch Carter "halos are for angels" question

Recommended Posts

OK i have a copy that i have always regarded as a boot, it matches the picture in JM's 5th guide, But it is way too supple to be styrene and does appear to have a molded over label, as i have tried to catch this with my nail but have found it impossible. Dead wax actually looks stamped in !!.  At 8 o'clock i have an MR stamp, at 7 o,clock i have triangle 100251 Also a  long mark between 10 o,clock back to 9 o'clock that i cannot read (mono side). Stereo side has  7 o'clock MR stamp, 6 o'clock triangle 100251 , but at 10 o'clock it has the name "keith" scratched in.

Help please. (i have always thought of this as a boot so you can't let me down lol)

These are the markings in the run out for the original promo (stereo side) -

4 o'clock - F/W

5 o'clock - 1A (in a circle)

6 o'clock - GSF 1075 Stereo

Always assumed mine to be a boot, it's styrene but the markings are different from the above

got the MR in a circle , triangle 100851 and 6881s1075, presumably a later boot  ?

according to JM's guide originals are on vinyl, and styrene copies are boots.

Fair enough, always thought it was..

Then again i am sure that my copy is vinyl, I do have records on styrene, This copy is very flexible and does have a moulded over label, I bow to my pal Pete Smith's Knowledge (he honestly does know a lot more than me) saying that it is a boot (as i always suspected so). But anomalies do occur (not in my case, but you never know). What's the old saying? ah yes  "it's a boot until proven otherwise".
