I have a variant of what I thought was the UK first pressing, but with stamped matrix VR-08-21294-2A-1/ VR-08-21294-2B-1
front cover artwork is grainy, if you look very closely, the printing resolution is worse than the normal versions. I acquired it from a market stall in 1996

I no longer have the poster as around this time I was in Germany with the Army, most of my collection was stored at my parents house. My idiot brother for whatever reason decided to throw darts at the poster up against a dartboard. Being a total idiot the dartboard was placed against a radiator.! Obviously the inevitable happened with a punctured radiator and a ruined poster. Not only this but he managed to destroy my snivelling shits and my Wayne County *uck off single lending them out to his mates.
