could even be real. but a blank sleeve with handwritting on isn't worth trying, this is something that requires some sort of authenticity certificate.

Sorry to shit all over your parades guys - that is absolutely 99% real looking to me.

1) The EU IYH pressings were either almost, or totally ALL German made.
2) That is EXACTLY how White Label test press records should look. Hand writing, no printed labels, white labels, white sleeves.
3) Chance of someone trying to fake all that, and it not already doing the rounds like the TCATS blue/green - < 5%

My guess theses are one of a small number of the EU test presses or possibly early promo copies from the press. Someone scored very very nicely in my opinion.

No in this case its just like you are talking about two cars and saying they are both just old red round-shaped Italian cars.

One is red Fiat 500

One is a red Ferrari 340 Mexico

Hi to all,
I've win it yesterday and I think this is the test press version of the box.
The items looks like an EU Test Press and I hope it...my test press collection of other band is like this...

If this is a fake I've a good FETICCIO (italian of "nerd memorabilia" or like this)...but I like feticcio

Congratulations - VERY well done. I do not think it is a fake - everything about it looks correct to me
