The words "Made in France by Pathe Marconi" was printed around the label.

Some info on early 70s Beatles pressings, one plant was used at Hayes, Middlesex for most of the UK pressings, although in the early 70's there were a lot made by Pathe Marconi in France, under contract, while the UK plant was supposedly under refurbishment, or it may have been due to the oil crisis at the time.

COMMENTS
The last album "Let It Be" was released as a boxed set.
All boxed type came with the "THE BEATLES GET BACK" photo book, and some boxed set came with an Apple promotional poster.
Three kind of cover were used for the boxed set, all of which were glossy and soft:
1) with the Parlophone logo at the lower center of the back cover, and under the logo, Apple's name was not credited.
2) with the Apple mark instead of Parlophone on the back cover. It was a "red apple". And under the Apple mark, "Apple Records" was credited.
3) the same design as the cover 2) , but the color of the apple on the back cover strangely changed to bluish Green.
