    I don't completely understand.
    Is it an auction of the original graphic of the cover?
    Or is it an auction of a limited edition serigraph reproduction, as stated in the small letter?

    It's a proof. A seriagraph, not the original artwork.

    Thanks for explaining. I guess if one doesn't read carefully the small letter and the web's wording, one can be misguided to think otherwise.

    I wonder who owns the original.
    It could be either George Hardie or the Thorgerson estate, but it's more than likely EMI/Capitol.

    Who owns it... and how much is it worth (if it actually can be appraised).
    Shall we live enough to see it selling for as many millions as some paintings by renowned artists of the past?

    Certainly not the finished album cover, but I can't see how there's another copy like this.
