In saying that, the 'E' on Evanescence would be almost off the CD with the way the original art work would lay on the CD.
IMPORTANT: I may be wrong if the scan of the CD didn't pick up the edge or the inner core of the CD. Check the actual CD and see if it looks like your scan.... If may be an original, but my concern is no IFPI number.
You also don't have an IFPI number. If I am not mistaken, all originals have that IFPI number.
That number is stamped by a legitimate company who is a member of IFPI, thus making the production original.
I am not wanting to burst any bubbles here but that is what I have found in my research.
reason it wasn't lined up correctly is because i had to splice the pages together because my scanner won't scan the whole pages. so some is offset somewhat.
CRT BWE0002 x0A21C is the number around the inner ring of the CD. as far as ifpi, i'm not sure what the heck that is. since bigwig wasn't a member of ifpi. according to the website listed.
and well if it's not a real one. oh well. only spent 20 bucks on it. but it has the serial number. which was all i was told to look for when i was asking people on here about it.
