Apple black sleeve type-1A:
East coast singles were issued in straight cut sleeves manufactured by Queens Litho.
COMMENTS
At the end of the summer of 1968, on 26th August, the Beatles issued their first single on their new label.

At the time "HEY JUDE" was released in August, 1968, Capitol was pressing singles at its factories in Los Angeles, California, and Scranton, Pennsylvania.
1) The Los Angeles records have a machine stamped asterisk (*) in their trail off areas.
The labels for Los Angeles discs were printed by Bert-Co Enterprises of Los Angeles.
2) The Scranton records can be identified by the logo of the International Association Machinists stamped in their trail off areas.
The label for Scranton records were printed by Queens Litho in New York, with the label copy overprinted by Keystone Printed Specialties Co., Inc. of Scranton.
3) Sometime in 1969, Capitol's factory in Jacksonville, Illinois, began manufacturing singles. These records have either a hand etched "O" or a machine stamped "0" in their trail off areas.
4) In late 1969, Capitol opened a new factory in Winchester, Virginia. The trail off areas to the Winchester discs have a hand etched drawing that is supported to resemble a Winchester rifle, but looks more like a crudely drawn long-stermmed wine glass.
5) In order to meet the huge demand for Beatles records, Capitol often subcontracted with other companies, such as RCA, to manufacture singles.

Apple did not prepared a picture sleeve for "HEY JUDE", making it the first Capitol-distributed Beatles single issued without a picture sleeve. Instead, the record was packaged in "The Beatles on Apple" sleeves.
1) East coast singles were issued in straight cut sleeves manufactured by Queens Litho.
2) West coast singles were initially packaged with Bert-Co tab cut sleeves.

Label variations:
The labels for the Los Angeles discs were printed bt Bert-Co Enterprises of Los Angeles. The label backdrops for the Scranton records were printed by Queens Litho in New York, with the label copy overprinted by Keystone Printed Specialties Co., Inc. of Scranton. The print on the Los Angeles labels is slightly larger than the print on the Scranton labels.
Type-1: (first pressings of the single)
Light green apple label and have "HEY JUDE" and "(Lennon & McCartney)" to the left of the center hole. "THE BEATLES" , publisher's name, running time and catalog number "2276" to the right.
The B side has "REVOLUTION" and "(Lennon & McCartney)" printed vertically to the left of the center hole, and group's name, publisher's name, and running time printed vertically to the right. The catalog number "2276" is printed vertically in the lower left portion of the apple.
Type-2:
Has the song title and "(Lennon-McCartney)" in the upper left part of the apple on both sides.
On the A side, "THE BEATLES" is below the center hole, on the B side, the group's name appears in the lower left part of the apple.

COMMENTS
On 6th. March 1970, Parlophone released "Let It Be / You Know My Name (look Up The Number)" on Apple R 5833. The same songs were issued by Capitol on Apple 2764 on 11th. March.
The single was masterd at Bell Sound in New York by Sam Feldman. The trail off areas of the single have hand etched master numbers, a machine stamped Bell sound logo and Sam Feldman's hand etched "sf" initials.

The first pressings have the song title, songwriters credit, and group's name centered below the center hole on the A side. The B side has the song title, mistakenly printed as "Look Up My Number" instead of "The Number", and songwriters credit to the left of the center and the group's name in the lower left part of the apple.

There are three variations:
1) L.A. pressings have glossy light green apple labels. The first pressings have Apple perimeter print on the B side(=this record), while later pressings ave Capitol logo perimeter print.

2) Jacksonville pressings with dull medium green apple labels with Apple perimeter print on the A side.
3) Later L.A. pressings with Apple perimeter on the A side.

There are two sleeve variations, both of whitch were probably printed by Queens Litho.
1) The straight cut top sleeve has "You Know My Name" in thin letters on the open side.
2) The second variation has a curved down top on its open side.

COMMENTS
The single was masterd at Bell Sound in New York by Sam Feldman. The trail off areas of the single have hand etched master numbers, a machine stamped Bell sound logo, Sam Feldman's hand etched "sf" initials, and a script "Phil + Ronnie".
The last etching is producer Phil Spector's tribute to his wife Ronnie.

The design of the picture sleeve issued with the record is similar to the sleeve for the "Let It Be" single; however, it features a different picture of each Beatle and has a white rather than black background.

The sleeves have "Manufactured by Apple Records, Inc. 1700 Broadway, New York, N. Y. 10019 an abkco managed company" in small letters on the open side.

The East Coast Queens Litho-produced sleeves have a straight cut top. (=this record)
The significantly rarer West Coast sleeves were manufactured by Bert-Co and have a tub cut on the "For You Blue" side.

There are four variations of the single. The first three are the first pressings.

1)The Los Angeles press: (=this record)
> Has the song title and songwriters credit below the center hole
> The group's name to the upper left of the center
> "(From The Beatles Motion Picture "Let It Be") to the lower left center hole on the A side.
> The B side has the song title and songwriters credit in the lower left part of the apple
> Both sides have publishing information, time, record and master numbers and "Reproduced for disc by PHIL SPECTOR - Record first published: 1970" to the right of the center hole.
> These Los Angeles discs were first pressed with glossy light apple labels with Capitol logo perimeter print. Later pressings have light apple labels with Apple perimeter print on the A side.

2) The Scranton and Non-Capitol East Coast press:
> Has the song title and songwriters credt in the upper left part of the apple
> group's name below the center hole (in the lower right part of the apple on B side
> the film reference in the lower left part of the apple.
> These Scranton and Non-Capitol East Coast discs were first pressed with glossy dark apple labels  and  Apple perimeter print on the B side.

3) The Jacksonville press:
> Has the song titles in small print and the group's name in micro print.
> The song title and songwriter's credit runs along the top of the apple on the A side and in the upper left part of the apple on the B side.
> Both sides have the group's name below the center hole
> the film reference to the left of the center.
> The "(J.Lennon-P. McCartney)" credit on the A side is too close to the top of the center hole, which cuts though the credit on many copies of the disc.
> These jacksonville pressings have glossy dark green apple labels with Apple perimeter print on the B side.

4) corrected Jacksonville press:
> similar to the 3rd. version, but with minor differences. To correct the problem of having songwriter's credit on the A side obliterated by the center hole, "J. Lennon-P. McCartney" are separated by an inch of of space.
> In addition, the film reference is shifted from middle left of the apple to the lower left.
> On the B side, the song title is on three lines rather than one.
> These correct jacksonville pressings have glossy dark green apple labels. The first labels of this variation have Apple perimeter print on the B side, while later pressings have Apple perimeter print on the A side.
