Thanks a lot Ducksoup!!!

Musikstack helped me out in fact (and eBay as well ;-) ) with

Queen, You're My Best Friend / '39 , Deutschland, EMI Elektrola 1C 006-97944
Queen, Body Language / Life Is Real (Song For Lennon), USA, Elektra E-47452 (but without PS)
Queen, Killer Queen, 1974, Belgien, 4C006-96060

plus I bought Killer Queen, French pressing from 1974 as well ;-).

And Thank You Very Much to YourValentine for helping me to check an offer which confused me and saved me in the end from losing money.

But I have to admit, it's quite tough to search for all these old vinyls!

You're welcome.
Please be aware that the French Killer Queen recently got counterfeited...!

The french counterfeits have a Mint sleeve made from a very high quality scan.
Not easy to identify as a counterfeit...

Here are some examples of the fake french Killer Queen:

 How can you identify the fake from the good ones (apart the mint condition of the sleeve)?

Where they get all the 7" vinyls of killer queen from france? I don't think they pressed a few copies nowadays...

@Ducksoup: Bloody hell, even 7'' Vinyls can be counterfeits??? I didn't know that at all!!!

I bought this one from a long time seller and it looked "used" from the scan he sent me. So I hope it's not
a counterfeit in the end. Cross your fingers - I really didn't know that. It cost me € 30, which I found is a fair price.

It was just very strange - some people must have found this message here and contacted me as well and offered some Vinyls which I have requested and some other rare ones.
But strange enough how fast they wanted the money via Paypal ;-) before any answer of mine was answered.

I always want to see pictures (scans) of the Vinyls because I was told I should get them. I have a friend in Hamburg who nearly had each available Vinyl of Queen in his hands and I definitely rely on his opinion before I buy one.

I know some are very expensive and it just came out of the blue that I started to fill up my Vinyl collection, because at some point, when nothing really new turns up, it's nice to start collecting the old stuff.

I will check this one asap when I receive it.

But perhaps I should start collecting MJ Vinyls. Thriller is a good deal on eBay.de for appr. € 5000,00 - I should think about it *very loud laugh*!

Thank you very much for your information!!! This is very much appreciated! I definitely had no idea or any thoughts about counterfeits.

The difference between an original and a counterfeit should be the kind of paper.
The original is that typical 70's rough, mat paper - the counterfeit has a 'shiny', more normale paper.
Indeed from a scan or picture alone it is near impossible to see the difference.

But the Killer queen french 7" vinyl itself it's quite harder to find in many copies, even without the picture sleeve...it's not like the fake Hammer to fall live sleeve, where you get the vinyl from the red ps and put them in a fake sleeve.

That's why I doubt it's a fake...

I have one of these so-called fake copies. I really don't think it is a fake copy. The paper sleeve is the same and it does not smell like a new record that has just been made. It smells like an old 74 record. For comparison, I also have the French Now I'm Here, Bohemian Rhapsody and Tie Your Mother Down and it looks like exactly the same as these. It just seems according several people that a old lot of French Killer Queen has been found in an old Pathé-Marconi factory. I don't know if all these stories are genuine or not but I really think the French Killer Queen are not fake.
