A test pressing of "Raped Ass" sold on eBay in May 2006 for approximately $590 to a Japanese bidder. The auction did not contain much useful information or a good photograph of the record, but here is the photo as well as the auction itself, with the winning bidder's ID blacked out. (The auction is still available from eBay, but not for long.)

The label of the test pressing is the same as that of some other test pressings of Swedish hardcore records from the era, which were clearly pressed at the same Swedish plant. It is unclear how many test pressings of this record exist, but this is the only one I have ever seen sold. Notably, all "pressings" of this record came from the same stampers and have the same matrices, so no matter how many sleeve versions there are (more on that issue in the future, of course), there was likely just a single run of test pressings.
