HI IM 69 . Been Collecting now for 50 years , in that time iv had MORE COPIES OF Led ZEPPPLIN 1ST . in Fact It was One of the First LP's i Bought On Leaving School . This LP; Use to lay around Everywhere in the 70s/80s/90s i remeber playing all kinds of versions ... IN FACT TO ME it's NOT RARE AT ALL . Just Very seriously Over Priced , and exploited .when i was a rare record finder in the late 70s .. if id have taken that into a famous dealers shop LONDON he'd have laughed at me , In My Opinion ' the RECORDS that Are Rare are overlooked ' , i really think the JOY of collecting has Gone NOW it's Been INFILTRATED , like the ART scene .Another Thing Also if you think about it 'Lots of People Dumped CD And Started Collecting Vinyl . which NEEDS a lot of Looking After to keep in top Condition ! Some CANT GRADE Also. the prices are NEVER CONSISTANTLY The same, in say the V.G /EX. CATAGORY IT's Like They JUST Make A Price UP /or Try it On .. BUT LED ZEPPELIN 1ST On Japanese Nippon With Mispelt Cover and Insert 'And OBI All in Great Nick Is Hard To Find ..

Well I don't know what version I have it has the orange sleeve
A side credits read / Superhype 1 2 4 Jewel music 3 ,as per version 1
Side 2 reads / 1 2 3 5 Warner bros / 7 Arts / 4 Jewel music, as version 6
Has anybody come across this version or maybe they had a few labels left over at the time.

Although the turquoise sleeve version only exists as a UK pressing, it seems a US version was planned. In Billboard magazine issue dated Feb 15, 1969 the LP is reviewed along with a photo of the turquoise sleeve. It's a US pressing too, with "stereo" printed on the top right corner, which the UK version didn't have.

I have a turquoise sleeve original copy with the corrected 8 matrix.
I purchased it in first month of release and it is not a match up.
Interesting theory with the mono/stereo issues,that would certainly make sense.
Also how do you explain the later orange sleeve containing both corrected & uncorrected(8)superhype/jewel matrix numbers.?

I have an interesting theory. Why different covers were made, Turqouise lettering and Orange lettering sleeve? Maybe one was designed for MONO discs and the other for STEREO discs.

There are early pressing which have (on it's matrix number "588171") the second "8" scratched out on matrix number and repaired back in its place hand-etched "8". The mono version was never made but if one had been made then the catalog number would have been "587171" (stereo was "588171"). Maybe someone thought the matrix is ​​a mono record and therefore meant to change the number 8 to number 7 but corrected back to number 8 because mono was never made (for example The catalog number for VANILLA FUDGE Vanilla Fudge MONO version was Atlantic 587086 and STEREO version was atlantic 588086. In the end of the 60s the Stereo Atlantic LP's always starts "588 ..." and Mono "587 ...")

In my opinion, the 1st pressing of this album is both, Turqouise lettering sleeve and Orange lettering sleeve. one was designed for MONO discs and the other for STEREO discs. But which one actually came first, Warner credits on labels or Superhype credits on labels? the answer can be found in the in the original inner sleeves which always are factory date coded. Usually there are date code on the "PLASTIC BAGS CAN BE DANGEROUS" inner sleeves, for example "1172 47" (November 1972, week number 47) or "24 69" (June 1969 week number 24) or "336" (year 1973 week number 36) etc. So everyone who owns the early version can tell here what date is on the inner bag!

There are 3 turquoise original press variants entered but none seem to have the scored out 8.
So which one is it?
Did any turquoise have the scored out 8 or was it only the very first orange colour superhype only?
