Can anybody who owns a copy of the UK 7" release with picture sleeve please describe it for me?

I have a copy in absolutely pristine condition, it's been sat in my record collection for 20 years and is completely perfect in every way, it's been sealed and is not even discoloured.  The picture sleeves I think have seen in second hand shops some time ago are paper and not very sturdy, but the cover of mine is made from a fairly heavy card, with a good gloss on it. There is no sign that it has been scanned, no sign of any old ring marks from the original before it was scanned, the whole cover is a very faint yellow colour, but this is the print, not discolouration.

I am questioning the authenticity of it, but why would anybody bother to have a super high quality forgery made of a record sleeve that isn't even worth that much when it is 100% mint? It probably cost more to counterfeit it than it would be worth...

I have a similar sleeve (hard card and gloss) although it's not in perfect condition.


Don't shun it!
