Blood For Dracula - Criterion Collection question (sealed sticker?)

Anyone here have a sealed Blood For Dracula Criterion Collection dvd? Mine does not have the white Criterion sticker at the top, but my Flesh For Frankenstein does and I'm worried it may be a boot. As far as I can tell, it's legit, but it's just missing the sticker. Thanks

Criterion's earlier pressings did not have that sealed sticker, so the absence of it on an older Criterion title does not necessarily mean there is anything to worry about.

thanks for the reply. that's what I figured, but since I'm selling it I'd like to be 100% sure.

I'm hoping someone comes along that also has this sealed and can vouch

If you're talking about the security seal at the top of the case with the title of the disc printed on it, then, yes, it should be there if it's a sealed copy. I had a couple of copies of this before and they both had security stickers.

There's a completed auction on EBay (see below). If you look at the first picture, even though the case is open, you can clearly see the security sticker at the top of the case.

Yours might still be legit, but someone might have opened it and then re-shrinkwrapped it.

Mine had the sticker but I've had other Criterions that didn't.

I bought BFD and Flesh for Frankenstein at the same time maybe 4,5 or 6 years ago and BFD had a security sticker while FFF had none. I have some others that there was no security sticker on to.

Well, I just got home and found that they both have stickers but neither say "Criterion Collection" on the sticker (usually in black/white contrast), but imagine that this is normal and that Criterion probably didn't always include both the title and "Criterion Collection" on the security sticker. Both have standard "The Criterion Collection" across the top of the cover, so I think I'm all good.
