Far much hardest to find that the Age d'Or Serie. Some are easy to get and cheap, and for the others like the one above, you could wait for years before owning it. Plus, the same PS exist with two different kind of papers for all the catalogue if you see what I mean...
Nuts, yes but I like it ;D

These two ones below drove me nuts during a long time. I've missed them at the time of their release, not everybody knows they exist, and the ones who knows thought they're easy to get. It took me some times to get them, the Harlem Shuffle one was really hard to get. For Rock and A Hard Place I missed the variant with no silver letters now I got it !!!
French 7" of Rock and a Hard Place with or without silver letters Note it's the same for the back cover with or without silver letters but both should have the sticker.
But The Harlem Shuffle with poster had an "accident" It was packed away in the bookshelf, left in the sun shining thru the window for couple of years, totally unplayable after that all wrapped up...... I've never got another copy, but the poster is nice
Rob, you won't believe me, but I've got the same trouble with the Official FAN Club Kit release from 1983.There 's an Interview 7" in it, an mine's had some gondolage because of the strong package made by the seller who shipped it to me. Too bad...but I used my books and insert the vinyl between the books during some month. No way still a gondolage... I decided to use my last chance, put the record under the sun during 1/2 hour, it was a trick that was given to me by an old timer collector, just after the 1/2 hour , the vinyl was flabby obviously,and I once again put it between my books (The heavy ones) during some month...and it worked !!! Now I could play it, there's still a very few gondolage, but I could play it. LoL but I'm serious ;D
Super nice singles with posters. Did actually not know they existed... Need to keep my eyes open for them. They are UK pressed 7" I suppose ?
In fact, I'm half satisfied ;D There's another one to get... Mine's is the dutch one, and there's also the UK one with a different reference and poster see below ( scan from a french rarities Book I own)
The envelope do not have any stamp but a "paid for" red cancellation WITH the addvertisment of the sender:
ERIC EASTON LTD
Eric Easton had an employee by the name of Andrew Oldham and this Andrew used to be the Manager for this Rolling Stones band. Well, I guess you know the history of the band so I do not need to get into details.
So here we still have the original envelope in which this set of autographs was sent out. Oh, yes, who is the receiver of the letter back then? Yes, a miss Stella Weckman at Wäster Långgatan i Åbo/Turku Finland. She used to be involved with the Rolling Stones Fan Club of Finland in the 60's
Still one detail, the envelope is dated 15 IX 65, September 15th 1965, just about four weeks after that them boyz had put out a single with a song called Satisfaction....
How more authentic can it be??
I just love this item
And then, getting a bit trainspotty again, this may be an unique item as I have never before seen Jaggers autograph done by Brian Jones holding the pen.....

My handwritten letter from Brian Jones. A fan ask Brian why he always looking at the ceiling on top of the pops when they played 'the last time'.
Thank you for your letter. i am not sure about the tour dates because they haven't been settled yet. I do remember when i looked up at something on top of the pops. I have so many letters asking about that. so i couldn't forget it. I was only looking up at the ceiling. I must rush dear, honestly. Brian Jones.
I didn't believe that I could get a hand on it one day Probably the hardest to find French Single which came in two different PS, the first one is well known with a B&W picture but this one, is the one you gotta catch, I'm happy like a child The record is the same for both sleeves, first publishing 1965.
the first sleeve
... and the second one
