How to tell the difference between first and second press Blood Mountain LP's

I see it all the time, people selling a white Blood Mountain LP on ebay...they check the pressing info somewhere (Discogs or Dead Format...whatever) and see that there are 1900 white first press, and 500 white second press. Not knowing what they have, the seem to always pick first press....hoping for more money I guess. The only way to actually tell the difference at a glance is on the front cover. The top left corner to me is a dead giveaway. Look at the picture, the one in the front, gold top corner, second press. The one in behind (with the signature on it), white top corner, first press...easy peasy.
