I'm somewhat confused, as this is the only SO-383 version that shares the runout matrix code on mine, however mine also clearly has "Her Majesty" listed on the back cover despite the notes above specifically saying it was not included. Anyone have any helpful knowledge on this?

I remember seeing this pressing named the Jacksonville Pressing. It's a very early (earliest?) US pressing of Abbey Road.
