There is no limited edition. Most of the first pressing have been seized by the FBI but the boxset was later manufactured again and again and again. Some copies still have "limited edition. - 250 sets only - This is No ____" (some with a handwritten number in order to make it look like a "real original" copy) others don't, but there is NO limited edition of 250 copies, this boxset is probably still made nowadays somewhere in the world. Most of the time, people believe this kind of record is limited to 250, 500 or 1000 copies. Not true. There are thousands copies of Spunk, Welcome to the rodeo, 100 Club (76 Club) and Gun Control with the same matrix numbers and same labels. This boxset is, in fact, very common in the band's discography.

lots of fake German represses are out there all with the same number 215. If your copy has Black and white labels and number 215 its one of the German fakes from the early 80s. Colored labels are the original issue.
