Notes

This is the initial Rough Trade distributed issue. These issues came with a plain white sleeve stamped by the band themselves with the words THE SPECIAL A.K.A 'Gangsters' Vs THE SELECTER. This stamped sleeve was limited to 5000 copies.
The subsequent issues came in the standard 2-Tone sleeve: Gangsters / The Selecter

I visited the Two Tone Museum in Coventry recently, and they have Neol Davies' copy and he hand stamped his as The Selecter vs. The Special AKA Gangsters, a unique one off copy! Anyhow, the Museum's well worth a visit for all Two Tone fans and all old Rude Boys and Rude Girls. As for Gangsters, well what a fitting tune to launch a record label and the whole Two Tone movement, brilliant.

Is there any way to distinguish this from the repress apart from the handstamped sleeve?
