Why are some CDs from trusted sellers so cheap? 9 Years ago Karma: 0  
I noticed that some trusted sellers from China sell mini LP CDs cheaper than the official obi price. Why is that so? I mean, these aren't supposed to be counterfeits, but still are considerably cheaper.

A couple of years ago I bought several cheap mini LPs, and these were mostly recordings that, in my opinion, are less popular. For example, Iggy Pop, The Damned, less popular records by the Kinks, Motorhead. But still... why are they so cheap?

Thank you for the explanation. I bought Metallica CDs from such a seller and I see they are exactly the same as the ones that I had bought from Japan.

Sometimes are not exactly the same and they have a stiker over the bar code meaning that are not for sale.

Front cover (main) image of YES-BOX1 : Yes : Roger Dean Box
YES-BOX1 : 1998-05-29
This ULTRA RARE promo box has the distinction of being the FIRST EVER Disk Union mini LP Promo Box!! The full title of the box is:YES ORIGINAL JACKET COLLECTION selected from ROGER DEAN WORKS. This box contained five YES mini LP CDs.
Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13142 (fake) : Led Zeppelin : Fake Led Zeppelin - 40th Anniversary Definitive Collection (Zoso Box)
WPCR-13142 (fake) : 2009-01-01

This fake Led Zeppelin 40th Anniversary appears to be made in China. You would find it hard to pick a sealed copy of this as being anything other than than the real deal.

Inside it is also remarkably similar but has some significant, obvious differences in packaging including: (a) the CD comes in a flimsy loose fitting bag (b) Physical Graffiti has no cut out windows and (c) III (3) has no turning wheel.

The CDs also have the tell tale extra ring in the middle but this is much better disguised than usual.

Unusually for fakes these have the catalogue number and an IFPI code (CC 303) on the silver side of the disc.
