Styrene injection moulded labels have a tint of blue and not silver.

Hard to spot what the difference is between 'Styrene' labels and 'silver injection' labels. Anyone? Or is this an attempt to make a separate issue out of absolutely nothing ?!

My version is P1978 with Fiction silver injection moulded label, but in a small wonder cover, with dripping tap on the back cover. Does any one else have the same?
