Because all the so many fake testpressings on the net, Lets start a new thread how to recognize the real stuff. An original uk decca testpressing has always stamped matrixnumbers, and also the stampernumber " B" in the dead area. The handwriting on the labels is done by one or maybe two persons. Here are three decca testpressings written by one person. These are no fakes. If anyone has more ideas to recognize fakes testpressings, please let me know.
Aftermath; ( in my possesion)
Through the past darkly. § also from my collection)
This week is Beggars Banquet testpressing sold for 1200 euros. I think that these factory samples going high in price these days. Look to the handwriting. Exactly the same as those above, write by the same person at the time. That means its no fake.
Thanks Dartford for all the valuable information on these test pressings. I don`t have any of the Rolling Stones test pressing LPs but I do have another one. It`s the Decca BLUES BLUES BLUES LK 4681 LP. I was not sure if this LP was a real one or a fake when I bought it but now I know, than`s to you, that it`s the real deal. ARL 6721-1K and 6722-1K with the B on the dead wax. Same hand writing as on your Flowers and BTB Test pressing LPs. Best, Olle
