The original promotional single is extremely rare. The labels look indistinguishable. The trail-off is significantly different between the two. The original has the correct matrix number machine stamped in the trail-off area of the disc. The reproduction has AUTO: A hand etched into the trail-off area. The trail-off area is significantly wider at 3/4" on the reproduction disc and is larger than the actual track between the lead-in and trail-off area which is less than 11/16".
