Counterfeits

I just saw this auction on Ebay: 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/LED-ZEPPELIN-Led-Zeppelin-IV-1972-MEXICO-ADVANCE-PROMO-7-EP-Psych-33rpm/174202714256?hash=item288f4a7890%3Ag%3AK0QAAOSw7BleVjPX&LH_Auction=1

 

If it were real, it would be a very cool item to have, but there are too many red flags. I have noticed a lot of these fantasy items for sale lately, so I am going to post a few in this thread, in hopes of preventing you guys from getting ripped off.

This one seller seems to have found a trove of Russian records pressed clandestinely on old x-ray film. I remember seeing articles about these, but only jazz records from the 40's and 50's. If these were legit, you would think more than one single seller would have found them.

This 'promo from Uruguay' is supposedly from 1972, but the cover  picture is from the 1977 tour. Also it seems a single seller managed to find about 15 of them and started listing them on ebay in 2015...

Lots of fake Mexican 45s around. Sometimes the record is real, with a fake sleeve. Some also have fake labels.

Thanks, Sam. Those are great examples.

Those are not counterfeit, there are simply "alternative releases." You know, kinda like "alternative facts."
