  Most of these copies seem to be going through eBay, and a seller noted:

  • "These were pressed in Scandinavia in Spring 2001, 515 were made..."

In addition to the colors listed, there were apparently two test pressings made on black vinyl.  One of those was sold at eBay, that's how we found out about them (thanks to Nick).  The images that the seller included with the auction showed a black 7" with a plain, white label.  The word "TEST" is written on the sleeve with a red marker where the official singles are usually numbered.

To prevent what has happened on previous counterfeits (see Real or Fake? and F Is For Fake) the makers of this item have apparently traced over some text in the credits so that everything is visible.  However, this was done sloppily and can easily be spotted (see image 2).
