There are lies, damned lies & discogs ownership statistics.
Rest assured that 300 people do not own a copy of this (it would be much better documented than it is if that were the case) and that it has not sold for $50 (almost certainly a mis-listed copy from a lazy seller).

:lol: Yeah, I said "if that's true" about the 300 owners. I'd like to think it is, as the entry for it has a big wall of text about how unique it is. I pray and hope that people aren't that lazy to just pick the entry for any early copy to add to their collection. Most Discogs users are pretty anal about which pressing they have ("my matrix number is 2345-B like normal, but there's a small nick etched below the B!").

What makes me most dubious is $50 for a VG+/VG with the Emerson torso, regardless of pre-release, promo or retail pressing. My original stereo and mono pressings haven't risen in value like I'd hoped, but I know I could get more than $50 for them!

Re. the "300 owners" - it's worth noting that this variant was set as the "key release" version for a year or so, so will have been the first in the list of 200+ variants. I imagine it picked up most of those "owners" during this time.

10 people claim to own the Scepter Acetate, so we know that even though a lot of people on discogs are anal and precise, there are who knows how many comedians on the site as well :lol:
