The original release style A one sheet has four printing variations. First printings were bootlegged, and can be easily identified by a printing irregularity in the form of a small hair in Luke's belt as well as a few other things. Otherwise known as the "Hairy Belt Bootleg".
The 2nd to 4th Printings have no known bootlegs or reproduction printings. Sometimes people try to pass off regular licensed posters measuring 27"X40" or 24"X36" as originals but they are easily recognized.
