Beatles, The/Counterfeit Beatle Albums

I may have spotted a "fake" MMT on Ebay;  it's on yellow vinyl and sports the exact AMERICAN Apple label configuration as the album did in the seventies.  The cover is non-gatefold but is NOT the same as the one we're used to of the album...instead, it's an LP sized version of the U.K. EP cover (meaning, without the orange designs on outside of the costumed Beatles and no song titles).

This album is touted as a U.K. "special edition" but, given the exact U.S. Apple label replica, that description makes no sense.

There is also a gray vinyl MMT out there from Germany.  It's on the German configurated Apple label.  This one is also non-gatefold but, in this case, it's actually the same unique cover the German pressing of the album always had;  I'm not sure if this is an "official" German pressing or also a bootleg.

I specialise in the records that the Beatles released. My expertise is in the British and American pressings but I`m sure I will be able to help with any record you may own. I`ve been heavily into the record-collecting side of the Beatles for over 11 years now (since I weas 12) and have slowly built my knowledge and credibility to such a point that I am one of the big UK experts in the field. Do you have an album of theirs perhaps that you`d like valued or would like some information on? I`m sure I can help.


Past/Present clients
In the past I've managed to help innumerable people who have wanted to know values or information regarding a Beatles LP they owned. Each time I have managed to fully help them, or if unable to do so to point them to where somebody else could.
