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.
