Hated And Proud

It's been so long since I bought these that I can barely remember what the story was. But I felt like I got a good deal. These are three different variants of the Let Down 'Crossed Off' 7" on Dead By 23 Records, in a limited 'Iron Cross' sleeve. No idea how many were made with this sleeve, but I have to say, it does feel slightly extravagant to have three.

So the story... not particularly exciting. These were on eBay. I think the seller listed them all with a starting bid of something silly like $35. And unsurprisingly, not one of them sold. Then they got relisted with a starting bid of $9.99 each, but each carried a buy it now of $35. I figured nobody would bite at the $35, but figured someone would bid an take the price above the minimum. Well, I watched them and bid and won all three for the minimum bids. I paid and almost expected that the seller wouldn't send them to me. But he did. And three months or so later I finally have them.

I really need a test of this 7" by the way. Just in case anyone can help.

I believe these were leftover copies of the 7" and Six Feet Under made up this Iron Cross rip since there weren't any of the regular covers left. I think they were sent out to those who preordered the LP.
