Weren't all those $1.99 cutouts of 'Let It Be' counterfeits?
Whoever wins this is probably gonna be pissed when they hear it.

My copy was a cutout and as far as I know it's 100% original - I know SOME of the cutouts were bogus but the only way to tell is to check for an out-of-focus label. Whoever got the sealed copy for that price...caveat emptor.

That one appears to be genuine.

I must have a "Frankenstein" copy...the jacket looks legit but the disc itself plays with excessive 'wow & flutter', it's literally unlistenable.
Dead wax has only "17500" & "17501". No Bell Sound, or SF.

That one would definitely be a fake, geo.

An out-of-focus record label would also be a clue if the record's unsealed.
