The sleeve print on my copy is way too dark. Not with the nice lighting as seen on the image posted here. A shame because it's a beautiful cover art
Edit: I went to the store and took a look at another one of these and it's sleeve print was wrong too. The coloring of the background was way uneven and ugly.
Edit 2. I went to the local record collector shop and finally found myself a copy of this CAT that was fine. I would recommend buyers to ask sellers for info on the print sleeve before buying

Mine matches this version in every way except that it's regular old black vinyl. And the little cartoon dinosaur thing is etched into mine as well, as talked about below.

Mine has the "dinosaur head" thingy, and is translucent yellow/orange (or is this what the "brown" version looks like?). It matches all the info on this release listing, but it also has a barcode, which is not mentioned or depicted in the release info here. But by 1981 I imagine most US LP pressings of any records would have them (and the artwork photos posted here seem generic to me). Barcode is 0-2313-83006-1-3. Anyone else have a barcoded translucent copy?

So if this is Not On Label, rather than on Rhino, is this a bootleg?

My copy seems to be exactly like this one except for two differences: The labels are silver with black lettering, and side two of the inner sleeve says "PRINTED BY SOMETHING ELSE" instead of Clifford Press. All other identifiers are the same. Anyone else seen that?

Great reissue, almost everything Rhino does (based on my experience) is fantastic.

I remember having several copies of Closer at the time it was released and it was a bit of a hotch potch in that the only thing I can say with any certainty was that the 1st issues came in the old rough/matt type sleeves-both outer and inner sleeve.And some had cut corners on the inner sleeve and some hadn't-I can tell that by 2 I kept-given when released but with that variation between the 2.Matrix is the same A1B1.Well even Joy Division is 30 years plus ago now and I can remember them as little boys basically!
