I have 2 copies of this, one with the anal staircase postcard and the other without. The one without postcard i got 20 years ago, the one with i just got. Both have identical covers with similar wear/change of color and both records have the same matrix which makes me believe they are both originals:

Matrix / Runout (A-Side): FFK 1 A¹ THE HILLS ARE ALIVE MPO
Matrix / Runout (B-Side): FFK 1 B¹ I AM PERPLEXED MPO

But the one with postcard has a matte printed inner, while the one without the postcard is glossy. Can anyone comment on what their inner is?

I'm curious if that is the best way to tell if it is a first press without postcard or second pressing.

Can someone please tell me whether the second run F&F LP has the exactly the same
Matrix / Runout (A-Side): FFK 1 A¹ THE HILLS ARE ALIVE MPO
Matrix / Runout (B-Side): FFK 1 B¹ I AM PERPLEXED MPO
as the first? Also is the printed inner sleeve only with the first?
My copy has a printed inner sleeve, the above etchings, but NO postcard. Which is it? I'm happy to add photos of these details if I knew which edition they were from
