Here's what I have regarding the cover numbers ... so far.

I suspect that many of the Jacksonville "all rights" Apples have cover numbers of 17, but they're tough to locate; I don't own many.
Further, I need more information about the numbers found with orange and purple (label) albums that have cardboard covers, since I don't own most of them.
I also suspect that there are more Columbia-pressed albums with cover numbers of 7.
I will need to add some Winchester Apples from 1974 to the list -- those with "Mfd. by Apple" on the sliced side.

This is a good beginning, though.

That is amazing! I haven't tried to absorb it all yet, but it looks extremely informative.

I ain't a Beatles collector, but that looks really really interesting. Well done, and thanks for sharing!

Yes, but will anyone else notice or care?
This is exactly the sort of material that Bruce wanted to make sure NOT to include in his books!
True, the Parlophone book contains all kinds of crazy stuff, but that was "our" book, not just "his," and British fans demand it!

BTW, I found several label variations of the West-Coast "Meet the Beatles" recently...and an unknown variation of the Four by the Beatles EP.

Dave:

I count three versions of the "ASCAP-dominated" LA mono and three versions of the stereo.
All of these differences are "shifts." That is, the information is moved around slightly.
For example, on some copies, on side one,
(Recorded in England)
is directly under
BEATLES!
with almost no additional space. On other copies, that space is considerably wider.

I sent Bruce pictures, but they so bored him that he didn't bother to respond!
What it means is that Capitol underestimated the demand for the LP, so that the first
west-coast labels had to be re-done several times due to increased orders.
