Obviously fake, but itís the first time Iíve seen a bootleg like this
First picture disc I've ever seen, first 12 inch single bootleg as well. Lots of EU bootleggers still around though so this was always possible. Surprising it's taken so long really - just the popularity of the band and the increasing popularity of vinyl.

If they sell a few we can likely expect more singles - though they really missed a trick not using the 7 inch Big Me cover

And you quoted my post in particular to share that whine because...?

Also, totally the wrong sub-forum, this is for collections. Reading is cool.

on my post literally above - question for those who went to the DC Anthem show - were the coins they were selling gold coloured?

As they have silver ones on their store... (I'm assuming it's another batch so that those who couldn't be there can get one).

They were definitely gold at the show. Not shiny gold like the album coins, but more rugged.

Ok thanks, confirms my suspicions they've done a second batch for the shop most likely.

I see what you mean by this ebay listing. Gold but with a used look.

Well that's massively f$%$ed up though isn't it?
1) Your gig coin ceases to be THE coin
2) They are advertising it as THE event coin
3) Collectors now have to get two
4) There will generally be confusion on eBay as to whether one is fake or which is what

If they are repressing different variants thats just nonsense. I wonder if someone has just got the store listing details wrong given there are so many diff coins now.

I would like to see a pic of the other gold and silver coin.

Can't see coin on the store?

Ignore that, i have found it. Maybe the listing on the store is for illustrative purposes only, no matter what the description says?

I definitely thought that - with all the coins it would be very easy to take a silver description from something else and apply it in the wrong place... but the pictures very clearly show silver too so the art would have had to be done totally wrong in the first place and then the words made to match the art - still possible but it would be very very unlike Live Nation to fuck something like that up SOOO Completely

I really like when small old stuff like this comes up. Sticker from the 1995/96 tour era. Yes they really tried that flaming block font there for a while

I guess we will see when the coinis in the wild. Still, my Knoxville coin is bugging me. None on the store, gold and silver sold at the show...wonder who is making them?

I'll let you know on the coin, bought one so will upload a pic when it arrives.

as for the Knoxville one, maybe they all got sold out or just haven't got into the system yet for being processed onto the store.

So you mean silver AND gold were sold at the Knoxville show? If that's true then maybe that helps answer the Anthem question. Perhaps they actually did mint BOTH for some (or all?) shows, but then not immediately sell both together in all cases - like waiting to run out of one to sell the other. If that happened then they could easily end up with a bunch of one colour (of two) come back to the store.

I'd say it's just timing as to when they might go up - looks like they have been in show order.

Question - for the coins at the Washington show were they just in little plastic bags? or in the hard plastic coin holders like everywhere else?
