Black/yellow Parlophone label with silver print Type-4
Black and Yellow Parlophone label with silver print:
the name "THE PARLOPHONE CO. LTD.(capital letter)" on the outer rim, the "SOLD IN U.K. ..." statement and the "RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1964" statement was printed.

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.

There are a few label errors on the Stereo copy of Beatles for Sale 2nd. pressings.
1: On side-1, is where the song "I'm a Loser" is mis-spelled as "I'm a Losser".
2: On side-2 is where, on the top line, the "Northern Songs" credit is mis-spelled with 2 S's - "Northern Ssongs".

The LP cover is a gatefold, with both front and back covers laminated, but the entire cover is one whole piece of material, connected on the inside-right cover by the laminated fold over flaps. To remove the disk from the cover, you have to open the gatefold and slide the disk out from the left.

The orange blog on the front cover is actually Tony Bramwell’s hand – as he was holding back tree branches for the photo shoot.
The back photo is not a simple picture – The Beatles image was cropped and superimposed over a background of leaves.

COMMENTS
Most of all U.K. printed covers for this LP came with no front stereo indicator. However a few copies were manufactured with a silver, or in this case small black "stereo" logo in the upper right corner and its original U.S. retail price sticker ($ 2.50) and shrink-wrapping.
According to the record store information, there were produced for export only as the only copies they have ever found have come direct from the U.S.

I think;
At first,  few copies were printed with a small black "stereo" logo in the upper right corner. But, its very hard to look, so printing ink was changed to silver.

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) 1965" statement.
The word "STEREO" at the right upper portion on the label was small size.
The song title and artist name on the label was printed in slender Sans Serif type.

Sleeves for "Rubber Soul (stereo)" 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.

COMMENTS
Black and Silver Parlophone label with One EMI logo:
Parlophone started to use a newly disigned label in late 1969. Parlophone radically changed their label design to this silver style with an EMI boxed logo at the bottom of the label, and the rim text now arches around the top of the label rather than underneath.
The original label printer plates were used although the stereo mark was moved from the top to just above the catalogue number. It was thought many years ago that Parlophone had closed their mono back catalogue before the label design changed and as such no mono copies existed on this label, but over the years it’s transpired that three albums from the Beatles’ back catalogue had their mono runs extended slightly overlapping the transition. These three albums were “Please Please Me”, “Help!” and “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”. These mono presses are incredibly rare and very difficult to get your hands on. Label used between 1969 and early 1971.

Sleeves for "Rubber Soul (stereo)" did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. This issue has a sleeve made by Ernest J. Day.
