I never understood this thread...who uses wathces anymore? We all have phones that tell time. And if I wanted to buy a watch, why would i do it on Ebay? And what does it all have to do with Tull anyway ? Time for Everything? Play in Time? Watching Me , Watching You ?
Stitch in Time or Stormwatch maybe

Couple of interesting items sold on ebay this week.
A genuine MGM "Toe" stock copy of Sunshine Day/Aeroplane with small UK centre hole went for £245.45p.
A counterfeit MGM copy of Sunshine Day/Aeroplane with the band's name correctly spelt on the label and with a large US style centre hole sold for $36.
When you buy vinyl it helps to know what to expect just like autographs. Lots of things are duplicated. Prices are a clue but it pays to get expert advice. I tend to look for newer items in general.
Tull fans are fortunate that counterfeit 7" singles are few and far between.
The Toe/Tull large centre hole counterfeit was a deliberate attempt to deceive and I know at least two people who bought a copy thinking they had the real deal and paid a lot of money for the privilege. Some dealers will also try and pass it on as the real thing with "a second pressing" as part of the description - utterly incorrect and fraudulant.
Rule of thumb - if it's got a large centre hole and the band's name correctly spelt it's a counterfeit and worth £25 - £30 as a curio.
The other counterfeit I know of is a Penny Peeps single on the UK Liberty label. A genuine copy is worth quite a bit, definately in the £100 bracket, but a copy again with a large centre hole is a counterfeit and worth £6 - £10.

Silly me...a friend gave me a mint condition 'My God' bootleg.....and I figured it wasn't worth much...after all they made zillions....so I was gonna offer it on our forum to whomever wanted it, but stopped at a record store on the way home and the guy gave me a CD in trade for it...piece of crap 'Imagine Dragons' CD that my kid wanted. When I got home I looked on e-bay and saw the exact version ( cover and label) that I traded for a $7.95 used CD, was going for between $40 and $80 !
Lovely O16 NY signed by 'Jethro Tull'. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull favoured these guitars in the '70s so there is a strong reason for the signing. This is such a comfortable playing little guitar and in superb condition for the age.
