Notes

This is a label variant of Elvis Presley - Blue Christmas. It has different fonts, "NOT FOR SALE" split to two lines, and the matrix number below, not above, the catalog number. It also carries the date recorded.

Both sides: (From the RCA Victor album LPM-1951 "Elvis' Christmas Album".)

A-side:
Hibo Music Pub. Inc., ASCAP. (Hibo is a misprint for Bibo on "very early pressings".)
Recorded Sept. 5, 1957

B-side:
Elvis Presley Music, inc., BMI.
Recorded Sept. 7, 1957

The ?'s in the A-side runout represent characters I can't name. The first one could be the right side of a stamped 'B' or '3'. It is located just past the etched 'A'. The second is small but clearly scribed: it look like a triangular flag on the end of a short pole. It's placed nearly opposite the matrix number.
