Is this genuine and how can you tell?

I'm asking because I have one just like it - but I read on QOL that there were lots of fakes about, but since I can't be arsed to join up with them I couldn't ask how you can tell.

Do any of you lot know?

Thanks

Nickipee

Yes - It is Genuine.

How can you spot a fake - It looks like a fake!

If it is too new to be true, then it is! Genuine discs (even mint ones) will still show some sign of aging.

You also over estimate the art of counterfeit, fakes are never this good - Simply because they are far too expensive to reproduce for the individual - and mass reproductions (for example; if some 3rd world mafia types did produce a limited run) would flood the market (so abundance would become a sign) and betray silly spelling mistakes like "Mosic" or "Cabel".

Finally; the fakes the IQFC refer to; usually a white labelled disc with "Iron Wire" typewritten on the lable - or some handwritten gobbledegook in blue pen.
