COMMENTS
Black and Yellow Parlophone label with silver print:
the name "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD.(capital letter)" on the outer rim, the "SOLD IN U.K." remark, and the "(P) 1966" statement.

With a "FACTORY SAMPLE" sticker on the label of side-1.
After the test pressings were approved, and copies were run with the promo labels on them, the printer then loaded the machines with the proper labels for the disk's standard release. Then samples were taken from possibly each press machine making the records, and affixed with a sticker (red ink on white) and checked for quality.

Sleeves for "Revolver (mono)" did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. This issue has a sleeve made by Garrod & Lofthouse.
The mono and stereo releases were issued in separate catalog number series until early 1966. In 1966, the catalog number series was restarted at 7001 with mono and stereo releases now having the same catalog numbers.  

First pressing with mispressing.  Side 2 matrix no.: XEX 606-1 have "Remix 11" of "Tomorrow Never Knows". When "Revolver" was initially mixed a different master for "Tomorrow Never Knows" was sent off to be pressed. This mix is known as "Remix 11". Although subtle, it is different to the standard "Remix 8" which was ultimately to replace it. The story goes that each group member was given the first copies from the production line and John went to listen to it. But, it turned out that he was unhappy with the mix or that the wrong one had been used and he informed George Martin. Production was then stopped as the new masters were cut and the pressing plates were replaced. First presses have a side 2 matrix number of XEX 606-1 whereas the standard presses have XEX 606-2 and beyond.
(According to "TheBeatles-Collection.com")

First label  has Sans-serif print and song name “DR. ROBERT” on the Side 2.

COMMENTS
Black/yellow Parlophone label with silver print:
the name "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD..." on the outer rim, the "SOLD IN U.K..." remark, and the "(P) 1967" statement.
The LP covers is laminated on both front and back, and is also laminated fully on the inside. The cover was one piece of material, with fold over flaps connecting across the top-inside cover.
The gatefold has two openings, the left one holding a sheet of Sgt. Pepper cutouts, and the right one holding the LP itself.
The first pressing of the album came with a psychedelic inner sleeve designed by a Dutch group, "The Fool," who also painted the side of the Apple Corps building, as well as John Lennon's limousine.

The "Fourth Proof" sleeve represents the earliest possible pressing of the Sgt Pepper cover. The Fourth Proof was the final version of the various "prototypes" that were explored by the Beatles when the cover was being designed. The cover (and text) was approved by the Beatles and an initial very small "test" run was undertaken to make sure everything looked OK. This small test run is characterised by the inverted “Fourth Proof” text in the top right hand corner of the inner gatefold – just above George Harrison’s head. This is therefore the earliest possible "prototype" (test pressing) cover. Same fold-back have can printed text "AR D13217(?)" which was probably the reference number for the prototype text that was used.

Printer name credit: "Printed and made  by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. Patents pending"

These copies mistitled the track "With a little help from..." as "A little help from..." on back cover.
The phrase "© All lyrics copyright 1967 for the world by Northern Songs Ltd. England", Parlophone logo and EMI logo were printed at the lower right of the back cover.
The mono covers have "PMC 7027 Mono" in the upper right corner and "This is a mono recording" towards the lower right corner of the back cover. Some covers were printed with both mono and stereo numbers at the top and "This is a mono recording" at the bottom. These hybrid covers were first used in late 1969, but were phased out when EMI discontinued pressing the album in mono.

COMMENTS
Black/yellow Parlophone label with silver print Type-7-1:
the name "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD." statement and the symbol "(P)196X" notice stayed intact.
But the name "SOLD IN U.K." statement was removed.

Beginning in 1964, Parlophone (and all the other EMI companies) began printing a phrase in the centers of all their singles, EP's and LP's, which said:

SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO
RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS,
SEE PRICE LISTS.

This notice appears on the labels of every UK market EMI product, from very early 1964, right through mid-1969.

The LP covers is laminated on both front and back, and is also laminated fully on the inside. The cover was one piece of material, with fold over flaps connecting across the top-inside cover.
The gatefold has two openings, the left one holding a sheet of Sgt. Pepper cutouts, and the right one holding the LP itself.
The first pressing of the album came with a psychedelic inner sleeve designed by a Dutch group, "The Fool," who also painted the side of the Apple Corps building, as well as John Lennon's limousine.

3rd. Pressing: "A DAY IN THE LIFE" is restored to the side-2 label.

These copies mistitled the track "With a little help from..." as "A little help from..." on back cover.
The phrase "© All lyrics copyright 1967 for the world by Northern Songs Ltd. England", Parlophone logo and EMI logo were printed at the lower right of the back cover.
The mono covers have "PMC 7027 Mono" in the upper right corner and "This is a mono recording" towards the lower right corner of the back cover. Some covers were printed with both mono and stereo numbers at the top and "This is a mono recording" at the bottom. These hybrid covers were first used in late 1969, but were phased out when EMI discontinued pressing the album in mono.
