Well on the spine or the back of the record there should be a number letter combination, such as SMAL 5463. www.discogs.com is a good website to find out if its an original or not. Type the code into the search box in the top left corner of the page, go to the drop down menu to the left of the search box and choose catalog # and press search. Sometimes more than one entry will come up and you have to look at each one. Make sure it says its an LP, or EP or whatever your record is. Also make sure the label on the record matches the description given on the website. For example it may say a record is from 1964 and has a black label, while the same record could be a reissue from 1976 and have a red label. Hope that helped!
