That'll be £640, please.

Spotted by Brian Forbes on a recent vist to Japan among some other "mega rare" pieces was this "UK Original, 1980" 'Falling & Laughing' single by Orange Juice.
Although it purports to be an original copy -including postcard & flexidisc- it's on sale for the quite ridiculous price of ¥90,000 (that's around £640 or 710€ or $850). Rather expensive but prices are quite steep for this ultra-rare single in mint or near-mint condition. 
Anyhow, if you keep your eyes open you could pick up a copy for a lot less. Though, be aware, there are apparently quite a few counterfeit copies knocking about. Some of them even as red vinyl, double singles!
