Thanks for the question - I bought it in an auction and the seller claims to have bought it off EIL many years ago. I didn't inquire more about their appreciation for it, but they have been very communicative and given me no reason to believe that it's not a legitimate Safety EP. I will say, that it's clear to me that if it is indeed not genuine, it's a very very good fake. Wondering if anyone else has seen one of these up close to know if there's anything else to look for besides the cd matrix numbers/font/positioning... Appreciate any contributions! Thank you all...
Personally cannot help you with confirming whether it's authentic or not.
However: Who did you buy it from? What was the seller's story? Did the seller appreciate the item for what it is?
Such questions - though obviously not confirming the authenticity - do give an impression on what to expect.
