You're right, Paul :eek:

The writing looks quite similar :urff: :evil:

Would that not possibly also be the case if they were genuine ?

As the tp's are from different artists and different periods of time, I consider this highly unlikely ...

Given the fact that - as radiojamaica also remarked - there's a normal cover with it and seeing that all these notes on labels are in the same handwriting, I take it as full poor fake.

*NOTE: Keep a picture of it to compare when five years later the same item should surface again without cover ... :evil: ... :lol: ...

The auction was ended today. Maybe the Greek does indeed read here.

I see a testpress of Floodland regularly at the local record shop. I suspect it's for some re-press though. But I'll buy it and take photos if it would be interesting (if it's still in the shop)?

Check the deadwax. It should say:

Matrix / Runout (Side A, Etched): ✴ MR-441L A-1 ✴ MT. 1 DAMONT D
Matrix / Runout (Side B, Etched): ✴ MR-441L B-1 ✴ 2 MT DAMONT C

Cheers!

I might pick it up anyway since it's just £15.
