The black label was discovered by the collector who goes by PIOTRULA (of Poland) and reported to this site in April 2013. It appears that that copy may have been offered for sale or trade on eBay in 2014. The pictures on this site are taken from a second copy found in the United States in November 2016. The tan label Pure Gold sells has sold for over $300-$360 on multiple occasions and there are many known copies. This one is so rare.

Inner Sleeve
Generic white.
