It really isn't easy, the labels are pressed into the vinyl when it's made. That is a genuine white label from 1980.

It looks genuine, and similar to mine which is also a Lyntone pressing. The hand-writing looks the same, but on my copy the blue "3" and "1" in the number on the A-side label is slightly further down and cross over slightly from the raised outer "circle" on the label. It also has the original laminated picture sleeve. I didn't think it would be worth as much as what they're asking on Ebay, even if it belonged to Gretton.

Yes that is a crazy amount, and it's a 7", not 12".
