Type 1 labels. EMI pressing.

Type 2 labels. Unknow pressing. Widely used thin font for text printing. Labels have a fully capitalized printed at the perimeter print. The “RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1964” was printed in a large capital letters. The “Sold in U.K.” inscription was printed thin print. In the words of Sold, U.K. and See appeared a big capital letters, which previously had never observed on British labels. One can also note a very large distance between “NORTHERN SONGS MUSIC LTD” and matrix numbers. Record has KT code on the side 1, which confirms the authenticity of this press. We can quite confidently say that this pressure was made at the Hayes factory. But the labels were manufactured by unknow factory. Maybe it was the one-time order, which was caused by some unforeseen circumstances. Stamps of the matrix numbers are identical presses manufactured by EMI.
