I've only owned one original copy of the SEA pressing of Steppenwolf's 'Gold'. The other copies I have come across since then were clever fakes which look a lot like the original except for one major difference. The copyright notice around the label is missing the text "The Gramophone Co Ltd" on the left side. Because of this missing text, the 3/4 circle looks lopsided. Also, the Stateside logo at 12 o'clock on the label is either missing, or in your case replaced by the EMI logo. Some fake copies also tried to print the actual Stateside logo, but it is a poor imitation and can be spotted with a keen eye.
