I have seen very few genuine copies of this single in almost 20 years of collecting, and usually in the £250-£300 bracket.  That said, it is worth what someone is willing to pay for it - and fairly recently, someone was willing to pay £495 on eil.com to secure their copy!  (I know eil often heavily over-price their stuff, but people still pay lol).

I know it is 99,99% a bootleg and not guenine. But even is it's pirate, I would like to know the value ;)

I thought so, but it seems to attract a lot of negative comments here when you call something "fake" lol - now that you have confirmed that it is a bootleg, all I can say is it has no value whatsoever as they're common as muck.  I got one not so long ago for £8 (GBP), the guy had stacks of them.

Here comes three pictures, I hope it is enough. I have this 45 rpm since so many times (11-12 years maybe) I can't remember where I got it.

Are you sure ??

I have several times looking on the pages which described differences betwen the original and the copy, and mine has not the clasic "default" of the copy (as I found on http://recensioni.ebay.it/Queen-Smile-USA-promo-Mercury-45-7-quot_W0QQugidZ10000000004844142 by example), but I never thought if could be an original one (I read every where it is so rare).

What if the % of chance it's truly an original ?
And what is the value of such an item if it appears not to be a copy ?

My copy looked exactly the same as this (centre pushed out etc etc) and was a bootleg - had to be, because the guy had several of them and was selling at £8.
