I know that Spizer actually identifies Jacksonville pressings with a letter "C" at the end of their number, but I like to use "J" for obvious reasons, and then for all the contract pressings, I use the first letter of the plant, i.e.; "D" for Decca, "C" for Columbia, "R" for RCA, and "?" for the mystery pressing plant described in the Spizer book. Decca has a 1" diameter pressing ring, Columbia's vinyl has a 2-11/16" diameter ring, and RCA has a 2-3/4" pressing ring.

That makes 17 variations of the first 4 pressings ('64-'67), not taking into consideration Promo, Contract, and Record-Club pressings. There are also a small handful of albums found with a couple of cool stickers; Press Information Sticker and The Beatles Are Coming Stickers
