Does anybody know if there are some copies that don't have the insert (not the letter) referenced on the notes and images on this release? I bought a sealed copy of this version and everything matches this release, except that it doesn't have the insert (or the letter, but it's mentioned that the letter may only been present in some copies). Anybody else bought sealed and didn't find the insert, or anyone with any information about this? Also the vinyl on my copy came in two Mercury inner sleeves, not mentioned on this release or pictured on the images though.
