Collectors: 1999 Hybrid Theory CD - Real or Counterfeit?


#1

How can one tell if the 1999 6-track Hybrid Theory CD is legit? I’d rather not have to break the seal if there is a way to tell from the outside artwork.

Thanks!!!


#2

Firstly, if its sealed… Its probably real, but 99% going to be the 2001 LPU1 edition of the Hybrid theory EP.

on the back, for producer, it shows… ‘Hybrid theory’ on the 1999 (1000 made). For the 2001 edition it will show ‘Mike Shinoda’. Hope that helps.

Also, post pictures if you want me to confirm that it is real.

Its not 99’ I guarantee.


#5

I can’t imagine that they sealed the 1999 HTEP’s … so it’s probably a reissue


#6

Thanks! It looks like its the 2001 reissue - not the original 1999.


#7

Which is still much better than the 200? fake. :slight_smile:


#8

Oh yes…I’m glad to just have one at all, even if it is the reissue!


#9

It’s not listed, but also look to see if it doesn’t say Josepph Hahn


#10

I did know to check the spelling on Mr. Hahn’s name. I broke down and opened it up…LOL…I might regret it later but I had to see the inside!


#11

Josepph hahn misspelling is not present in fakes nowadays. Main tips are the colour of cover (not too bright or overcoloured) and the brown ring on front cover touching H, not E in ‘THEORY’. Hope this helped.

just post some pics and u’ll be told quickly!

I’ve paid 55$ for my HTEP re-issue on ebay but you find them mostly between 70-90$. Last HTEP 99 I saw was sold by 625$

Thank God for the 2008 sale. Even though it has made this CD a little less rare,
