It's not a safe way to judge, but it makes me suspicious when a seller of a rare bootlegged CD doesn't emphasise to the fact that his CD is original. It seems to me that he wants to hide the truth without lying. Same with the Russian seller I mentioned in the PS of my previous post.

the second one is a 100% counterfeit, the first one most likely too (transparent tray alone makes me suspicious :) ). the latest boot has the same matrix text as the original.

Nuclear Assault bootleg?

The matrix area, there's no "A divison of ..." written under the UOF logo etc.

--> original:

Obvious bootleg, also matrix font looks fake.

On the other hand I had never seen those typical MPO engraved characters on the plastic hub (like Heir Apparent on Black Dragon or Apocalypse S/T), this means it was pressed in two separate moments, originally ...

This one appears to be a bootleg, though the picture isn't pristine (of course): http://www.ebay.com/itm/261350274051

The splotchy printing job on the disc seems to match the example listed by Metal Treasures: http://s1275.photobucket.com/user/Bootl ... 6.jpg.html

Edit: also, if you go back a bit on his feedback, people have complained of this seller giving them bootlegs before

all rare CDs sold by angrax2x are counterfeits. There are 30 - 40 such sellers. You better get to know them soon if you do not want to get screwed.

I see. I figured he might have been one of the lesser know ones considering people continue to bid on his CDs, but it seems obvious that these people don't seem to care much who they give their money to (as evidenced by that Angel Dust bootleg CD kreator72 sold for 200+ dollars). I'll stay on the lookout.

We should see the opposite side of the cd, from this one it's hard to tell, right ?

It has only one IFPI so it's 100% fake russian boot. I received the same a month ago and i know how it looks like. Hard to believe that chebanana can't see other IFPI engraved in plastic hub on his copy, so i am sure it's counterfeit. I have to say it's well done bootleg, so on the quick look you can't say for sure, only after detailed compare with original.

I only have a photo of the original but even this is enough to recognize the one from che as a boot - the booklet is a bit different on the edges.
