Mine has one Cursive label and one capitals, is that a misprint? Grey writing to front A2/B2

I was triying to add my pink marbled copy but I think it doesn't work. Could you please help me with this?

Does anyone know if my original Canadian copy holds any significance with the added promotional copy stamp on the back of the cover?

I have two different UK issues here, one with a matt inner sleeve and light blue title (like shown in current image) with an italic Rough Trade logo on the label (which I don't recall seeing before), but I also have another copy with glossy inner sleeve, dark grey title and regular square Rough Trade logo on the label
