I have another pressing plant question. This time I'm looking for information on Capitol's, "The Early Beatles". There are 2 markings in the dead wax area that I am not familiar with. They are not the normal markings for Scranton, Jacksonville, or Los Angeles. Any help would be appreciated.

I should add... the cover is an east coast #3, and the vinyl has an east coast label. There was no inner sleeve

The ampersand (&) is commonly-found with Scranton pressings. The so-called "anvil" symbol (see below) is the mark for Capitol-Scranton pressings, 1942-1963. The "anvil" mark was replaced with the IAM inside-a-triangle mark, but may be found on later pressings.


"anvil" symbol, looks sorta like:

Thanks, I kind-a thought the "anvil" symbol looked like the state of Ohio.

From looking at the Scranton mark as found on 1940s Capitol 78s, I got the impression that it was an outline of the Capitol with dome logo. Why it's called an "anvil" escapes me.
