The copy that I bought in 1983 has HRM in matrix but no "53" on labels. Also has textured, embossed cover which is not mentioned for this entry.

How is this one different than 585398?. That one is missing the runout info, but otherwise is the same.

Was the green sleeve later released March 1984, or re-released (i.e. issued again) March 1984?
