I'm not sure what version I have of the record. I bought it in 1995 and it says mono on both the cover and on the record label but it's the stereo mix.
PMC 1202. Anyone who can help me?

>>☞ If it is stereo and has ''Love Me Do'' on the back cover, it's a counterfeit.<<

There Are Verified Authenticated Examples Of The Above Which Have Been Now Been identified by USA Beatle Experts Bruce Spitzer and Perry Cox Which refute this statement. Authentic Stereo Copies of The Above Do Exist and Are No Longer Considered Counterfeit, Providing That They Meet The Guidelines Set Forth Concerning Authenticity. If Both The Jacket and The Vinyl Are Deemed Genuine in every other respect, these scarce pressings are genuine and not counterfeit. Estimated Surviving Pressings Number in the Double Digits These Are Extremely Rare Pressings, Which Often Sell at Auction In Excess Of $25,000.00 USD.

I know many people read something in print and take it as truth. There are many books and blogs about Beatles on VJ, all giving their opinions. Some are very impressive, but all are speculation. Simple Logic: As in so many cases where record companies have been sued, such as Velvet Underground, Rolling Stones,etc., and forced to change or replace a cover, does anyone know of a situation where the company replaced the innocent first release with a cover depicting the offense? Not I, but, some would have you believe this is the case with VJ...releasing an "ad-back" cover, and after legal trouble arises, changes the cover to display the 2 songs for which they received the injunctions. SURE!!!
