A small question on what to do with this.

Bought a boxset which has a very very base profil already in the database with an ean.
The ean itself seems to be correct (if put in google different sites with the box show up, with the other i do not find anything), but it was put on a sticker on the foil wrap of the box over the ean of the paper sleeve where the ean is different (probably misprinted and they did not want to repack/reprint that whole thing new).

Should be a complete new profile with the not correct ean be submitted?
Or should the correct one be used...which would be a bit problematic with the backcoverscan as it would not match and i cant put the sticker over the ean of the paper.

Helpful suggestions appreciated.

I would use the original EAN, the one printed on the box, not the one reinvented by the vendor.

Most often, they print a new label, not because the EAN was wrong, but rather because they want to get rid of old stock with a apparently newer release date or they mean it to be a different release in a different locality. I have witnessed numerous examples of such cases on amazon.ca, using original products from amazon.com.
