How do I know if an AC/DC Let Their Be Rock LE I'm buying is real. The cabinet graphics and playfield are the same as a premium inside and out.

I realize theirs a certificate of authenticity (which can be printed and faked), and different backglass and side rails (which can be bought on eBay).

Is their any full proof way to know it's not a premium with add ons purchased separately?

Thank you!

Signed playfield which is done before the clearcoat, exclusive to the Le's.
And the backglass I don't think stern would make extras that the general public would buy; thats why its called Limited Edition.
I think no let there be rocks came into the Uk only Back in blacks

Since when can you buy the mirrored LTBR back glass and armor on eBay?

You can't buy the backglass anywhere. Even owners that have a LTBR must break there backglass with proof and send the pieces back. Plus 400 dollars

Total unobtainium. That's how you know.

Stern has done a great job of keeping the LE specific stuff out of the hands of those that shouldn't have it, which is what I trust when I buy an LE it's really an LE

If it could be cobbled together and is identical why would you care?

backglass and side rails (which can be bought on eBay).

Ebay has a search feature that can include completed items. Did you see any Let There be Rock backglasses?

I think it's pretty unlikely an LE owner would sell their backglass anyway. Even if they didn't like it they would probably box it up in case they ever sold the machine. I assure you Stern & their distributors don't make it easy to get them. I wanted to hang the Back in Black one on my wall. I was unsuccessful in my quest.

If the backglass says "Let Their Be Rock", I'm pretty sure it's a fake.

Ask the seller for the original receipt showing the description of the goods.

Why are you looking for one ? Sort of know a guy that is original owner #141 sitting in the same spot since he opened it.......It would take a bit to pry it from me........ Aaaaaaah him. $$$$$

Hell, I could fake a receipt quicker than a mirrored backglass and impossible to find armor. The receipt would be the easiest thing to fake IMO.

Couldn't you just ask the seller?

Not saying it isn't extremely difficult to get the backglass, but so is Black Spiderman
