just as a warning:if you find a near mint/new german 1980 metronome pressing with all the original attributes,ie text. sleeve etc,beware as there was a pirate made in 2016(although it states reissue,which is hard to believe) which is very hard to seperate from the original.hope this helps....

Yes, it's a pirate. Unlike the original official pressing it doesn't have any matrix numbers. 

There's a similar recent unofficial "reissue" of Closer too with sleeve & labels copied from the original German Metronome release, and it includes a double-sided printed inner. Like the UP pirate this doesn't have any matrix numbers either.
