For years I have argued this old contract and recently I discovered the contract is actually a copy. I never received a copy myself. Of course, if this is a copy, it may well be altered. It is so unimaginable I suppose I was in denial or disbelief such a thing could happen.
The basis for non-performance of a contract is not usually challenging whether it is original or altered... if you know it has been altered then you would need to make that argument and you (or they) would need the original.

what is the contract for? Why do you want to challenge the contract? did you live up to your side of the contract?
The contract is not the piece of paper. It is the binding agreement made. The formation is based on legal principles.
Whatever your problem is, it is not the existence of a copy.
