Tongue in cheek says any Blue Note that is not ratty looking is a re-issue!!
If the cover has strange stains, worn edges, greasy fingerprints.. the LP is covered with thousands of fine scratch marks that do not affect sound quality.. then you can be certain it is a 'real' original Blue Note.
I have never seen an original that did not look like H.
(All of the perfect originals are now in the hands of Asian collectors, or fanatics who will NEVER sell them.. they even take them with them when they die!)
