Don Gardner - Cheatin Kind

Posted

I was asked over the weekend how to distinguish between the 3 different Sedgrick 45s (original [1], LP giveaway [2] & bootleg of the LP giveaway [3]).  I know this has been discussed at length on here but thought I would describe the differences in pictures.  Main points to note...

A) Colour - [1] and [3] are similar but [2] is a lighter shade of orange

B) Matrix numbers - as indicated

C) Credits - Only [1] has "Wr & Prod J. Vanleer". The "&" is missing on [2] and [3]. Also, [3] wrongly spells "Vanleer" as "Van leer"

D) Font - [2] and [3] attempt to replicate [1] but haven't quite got it right and consequently the length of the title "Cheatin Kind" on [2] is slightly shorter than [1] but [3] is quite a bit longer than [1].

E) Appearance - The "SEDGRICK" on [1] is printed closer to the edge of the label than [2] and [3], also both [2] and [3] have a brand new appearance.

Hope this helps............ Pete

I acknowledged that in the preamble but seeing the 3 side by side makes it simpler to understand

Think you'll find that the "machine stamp" on the boot is actually a dot-matrix when viewed close-up rather than a metal stamper impression.

Yep that would make sense, a cost cutting measure

Surely the easiest way to tell the original is, you won`t get one for a tenner! 😉

Unless you bought the cracked / broken / smashed one that was framed.... then again the frame was worth a tenner so I'll stop there
