Can someone please state the differences, if any, between the pressing that is this page and the link below?

This page says "Mastered at Sterling" and my copy has 'Sterling' on the dead wax, but that doesn't necessarily mean the other pressing doesn't have Sterling in the grooves as that information isn't on the other page/link above.

I have a copy of this LP that is stamped "MRΔ26395x" in the runout. Can't find any info on what that means.
