Two probs/points with this
1. The 7XCE matrix is wrong as it would have an addition of A2 or something extra to indicate it's got the James Bond intro that Capitol used on the USA and Canada soundtrack albums only and on the Capitol/Apple double red '62-'66 Alan Klein compilations again USA and Canada only.
2, This issue being as late as '71 would would have hoped it would be ESTEREO and not MONO in which case the matix would be 7YCE

(note the silly 7XCE gaff on the 2017 Strawberry Fields/ Penny Lane where this was now both new mixes and STEREO hence 7YCE should have been the order of the day)
EMI Every Mistake Imaginable how true

The scans here are by two different pressing companies as can be seen by the centres.

There is a second type of this Belgian 'Help/I'm down' Parlophonelabel. On the rim of the type 2 label is printed "The Parlophone Co. Ltd. All rights..." instead of "The Gramophone Co...."

WARNING!
The above limited edition 1982 Digital Stereo retro release with the 7 "Y" CE matrix 18280/18281 confusingly and very annoyingly had a later re-pressing (clearly as word got around on the QT of this unique UK exclusive new master Stereo mixes demand went up) EMI for whatever reason be it at the factory or elsewhere reverted to the 1965 Mono mixes with the 7 "X" CE matrix 18280/18281 with the addition on both sides of -4 and Q1. Sadly the embossed/etched plate for the visual text on this vile IEP was not re made and the clearly visable 7 "Y" CE was not changed, clearly to save costs further production costs.

In effect conning the Beatles collectors globally, clearly EMI knew why it had been selling lots of copies.

Check the actual pressing matrix stamped the run-off "dead wax" if it has 7 "Y" CE as the embossed text then you have indeed the limited edition new Digital Stereo pressing......
If the pressing matrix stamped in the run-off "dead wax" is 7 "X" CE 18280/18281 and has the additions after of -4 and Q1 then sadly you have a later re-repressing which reverted to MONO as was the 1965 original UK single. Ignore what the etched/embossed text says on the painted plate, only the pressing stamper matrix will confirm which version you have.
All original 1st run Stereo editions came in a shiney thin black die-cut sleeve, the MONO re-presses came in plain white curve top rear recess die cuts.

If you have the mono re-press bin it it's worthless against a silver text on black paper label 1965 original (note originals have a Dinked 4pin OC and have the EMI UK exclusive 1963 - 1969 label text "sold in the UK etc etc" and not a boxed EMI logo at centre bottom in sight, or a picture cover be it Singles Collection or a Photo, 1st 1965 pressings have HELP ! in a large clear script 2nd pressings have HELP in a much smaller script, re-pressings AFTER August 1969 have no "Sold In " label text, the later still re-pressings have a vile silver EMI box logo at 6 o'clock)

Happy checking, happy hunting.
