    Fake I believe I see pacman but the stitching on the beach side needs to be looked at.

    You need pics of the center stitching on the beach side.
    Also stitching around the edges of the beach side.
    Example below.

    whats with all this pacman stuff all covers even originals had this shape its only on some repro covers that shape was more defined with sharper edges making look more pacman shape but the one shown here is correct for that shape pattern as an original would have what does concern me is the stitching around the edge on the beach side i doesn't seem right ?
