I've got a copy of this record that I'm struggling to catalogue. It fulfills all other descriptors for this release, except that the matrix/runout is:

MERH 87 A//3 ▽ 42 0H (on Side A)
MERH 87 B//5 ▽ 42 0T (on Side B)

I reckon it might just be a later pressing of this version, but I'm not certain.
