My copy has stickers on both labels. "FACTORY SAMPLE NOT FOR SALE"
Red text on white stickers.
It's in an EMI inner sleeve that has the first Pink Floyd album listed on it so that's clearly post 1964.
Most likely an incorrect inner sleeve, I picked it up in a charity shop 30 years ago.
Otherwise identical to the above.
Message if you want pictures.
