One of my all time favorite Alice Cooper albums. I found this original pressing with the gate fold and giant billion dollar bill at a antique store for $10. Great condition too

According to the documentary "Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon " - The baby used in the main gatefold photoshoot, died a crib death, a few months later after the photo was produced.

My version seems to be a variant of this. Olive labels (exactly the same as shown on this version) with a variant of the matrix that says SIDE I: BS-2685 40396-4E SIDE II: BS-2685 40397-4E

Can't find my version... Olive labels, with etchings similar to first press.
Side I: BS-2685 T 40396-1F
Side II: BS-2685 T 40397-1F
Help would be appreciated.
