Has anyone ever seen the sticker over the rough trade logo on a NY This Charming Man? Is it rare? Thanks in advance.

Assuming it is not from other countries, I'd guess at a variant of/one of these courtesy of PJLM:

UK 12" - New-York mix [Rough Trade RTT136NY]
Beige-grey label with almost-black text. Sleeve paler than that of the regular 12" mentioned above. Four versions have been reported:

  • version 1
    Capitol-style logo with dome found on label and on the back of the sleeve. The front of the sleeve doesn't mention the band's name. Many copies have a silver 'U.S. MIX £1.49 RRP' sticker on the front.
    RTT136 NY A1 / RTT136 NY B1

  • version 2
    Logo on the back of the sleeve changed to variation without the dome. Logo on label unchanged. Still no band name on the front of the sleeve.

  • version 2.5
    A few leftover copies were sold with a sticker applied over the logo on the label. Unlike the 7" and regular 12" for which those stickers featured the rubber-stamp logo, in this case the new logo had 'Rough Trade' inside a circle. Still no band name on the front of the sleeve.

  • version 3
    Rubber-stamp logo on label. Band name on front of the light-coloured sleeve is near-black. Logo on the back of the sleeve has a dome.
    RTT-136-NY-A / RTT-136-NY-B

It is possible that variations on the above exist.
Leftover sleeves were sometimes re-used with a later repressing, or vice versa, therefore sometimes a record will be found inside a sleeve that doesn't match.


Given the amount of variants, a picture of the sticker and label would go a long way to answering your question.

FWD.

It does have the price sticker on the sleeve. So given its version 2.5, does that add to the value? What would you price it as?Thanks for your help.

Thanks,
Yes, this is '2.5'.
The general view here is usually auction with no start price and let the market decide. That said, there are 23 copies on Discogs starting from £15->49 (a version like yours is at £20).
https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/484962?ev=rb
Ebay has it's usual widespread range from cheap starting price up to £54.
Not all are pictured or described enough to marry up with your vinyl, but it gives you a general idea. I think anything over £20/30 is ok unless "a few left over copies" could be better substantiated - as that should probably carry some kind of premium after 30+ years. If you are looking to sell - the market place here prior to Ebay might be an idea.

FWD.
