Fake or Different Print - 8th Edition French Booster Pack

Post by CHaPuZaS » Fri Mar 06, 2015 3:34 pm

I've been checking a pair of boosters received a long time ago, and I can't tell if one of them is fake or from a different print.

The thing is that the wrapper looks real and, overall, the main differences is that one of those weighs 27,46g (Kraken) and the other 27,06 (Lhurgoyf). Also, and this is what leads me here, the Lhurgoyf one reads "Connais", and the Kraken one "Connaisseurs" at the level recommended to players.

I haven't been able to find the other boosters I have from 8th Edition in French, but comparing to a Ninth Edition that was in the same box, "connaisseurs" is correct. So... What is happening here? Does somebody have some info about this?

This is something that will be interesting to investigate.

If real, my guess would be all the Lhurgoyf image wrappers have this "misprint".

As soon as I find the rest of my boosters I will try to answer if that's it.

Hi César

Sorry, I can't help, as I don't own any French Booster 8Th Edition. I have looked on French MTG shops, French Ebay and google, and none pics of French boosters are to be find, and in a general way, findind older French booster is not an easy task. The Rathi Dragon and 4 French Preconstructed all carry the "Connaisseurs", at least, I could verified that. Then, I just find this on Magiclibrarities:
