This is technically a 2nd Press, but I doubt you'll find many people that quibble over value with any Gold / Black label Please Please Me. If anything, the sources I've been looking at say there were much fewer copies pressed of this edition before the transition to the standard Yellow / Black Parlophone label of the mid-60s (about to 5:1 more rare). To the right collector this would be more valuable than a 1st Pressing.
