    I found this at a local thrift store today. It is the 2nd generation - where they put a sticker over the original album art - you can see it little of the original art in the bottom left of the front cover where someone scratched away part of the ticker (Is that the original cover showing?)

    A friend said I should have the sticker steamed off - how do I do that?
    How do I find someone who knows how to do that?
    Thank you!

    You're saying that you want it to appear as though it was the more valuable issue by removing the sticker and thus cheating your prospective client? Seriously?

    welll unless you swear to keep it for yourself......!!

    but at this age trying to steam off a sticker , on a paper album....
    I doubt that would leave the album unscathed..

    What are you talking about?? I don't cheat anyone - ever. It's worth more if it's removed - and you sell it as having been removed (they will be able to tell anyway I'm sure)

    The condition of yours wouldn't be worth removing the sticker. Yours is in pretty rough condition.

    Read back. See the question marks in my post? I was asking - not making any accusations.

    That said, peeling the sticker is essentially putting a bogus item back into the market. Even if you sell it as having had the sticker removed, the next guy in line might not do so. Personally, I'd leave it alone.

    Why would it be worth more ?
    It's not from the original production that left the factory ....with no covering sticker on it ....... those are worth more !

    BUT...one comment from the above link....

    "The unpeeled ones are becoming more and more desirable and valuable. I would leave it as is. In some cases they command as much as the peeled ones."

    Your right I'm leaving it - besides it has a "sneek a peek at the original" peeled circle in lower left corner - you can see original hand & pants leg!

    OK I'll embarrass myself 1 more time - who is on left on Butcher album cover (whose hand & leg can you see in the partially peeled cover I am posting about?)
    Thanks (with head hung low)
