FRONT COVER CLOSE UP

This U.S. issue looks almost the same as the U.K. press (except "Black mountain") at a glance, but it's different;
1) the word "NOTHING IS REAL" at the center of the front cover was not printed
2) the word "Selections by the Beatles plus original Firm music." was printed at the upper of the front cover
3) the word "(C) KING FEATURES SYNDICATE-SUBAFILMS LTD. 1968" at the left of the front cover
4) The printing style and layout of the back cover are completely different
