This listing includes both labels, as well as the back label from the US market, which explains the controversy. Please note - the back label is NOT the same size as the front labels - it is smaller. All three are very rare labels and are in near-mint condition. The Balthus label is very scarce in the United States, while the blank label and the back label are very difficult to find outside the USA.
These are actual scans from the labels being auctioned. As you can see, the blank label for the US market is designated as "specimen." The worldwide label with the controversial Balthus artwork is also a specimen, but not at all visible. It is actually embossed, with tiny raised letters, about an inch long, near the young model's left leg.
