1968 First Press SWBO-101 Stereo. Embossed and low number 0440320 Original 1968 U.Scranton Pa first pressing of The Beatles'White Album'. This is the rare and highly sought after pressing containing all 7 printing errors on the labels. Upon release of the album, John Lennon noticed these mistakes and had them corrected immediately on future pressings but not before some of these extremely rare error copies had already entered the marketplace. The gorgeous very GLOSSY MINT LPs are absolutely stunning and free from any scratches and scuffs.
These are the finest LPs I've ever seen in my over 40 years of collecting. There are ZERO scratches , ZERO scuffs as they appear to have rarely, if ever , had a needle on them. They look unplayed and FLAWLESS new!! The labels are absolutely PRISTINE MINT with NO writing and NO stickers.
The near mint cover and the outer spine are stunning!! The inner spine does some very minor wear. There are NO seam splits showing. NO WRITING on any of the record labels, and NO WRITING on the front, back or inside the sleeve! The spindle holes are absolutely pristine and perfect.The Original thick stock portrait photos are Mint and the Original poster is Mint with no pin holes and no writing!! The Original inner sleeves are present and stunningly near mint! Another interesting error on this White Album, I believe when pressed, the'A' before the number seems to have been stamped onto the sleeve with no ink to imprint the'A'. You can faintly see the letter stamped, but there was no ink! The beautiful cover is totally intact now 52 years old with ZERO ring wear, NO writing, NO splits showing, NO stickers, NO glue residue, and NO rips or tears. The original inner sleeves are present and stunning. A machine stamped triangle with the initials IAM indicates that the record was pressed at the Scranton, Pennsylvania plant.
IAM stands for the I nternational A ssociation of M achinists union whose members worked at the Scranton plant. This is as nice as you'll see for sale anywhere on the planet. All the photos you see above are completely undoctored and free from any Photoshop, and are of the EXACT treasures you will receive!
No White Album is perfect, but this one is exceptionally nice. The cardboard used in the making of The White Album was extremely poor and susceptible to the seams easily separating, fading, soiling, ring wear, and both of the spines just disintegrating. Side 1: SWBO-1-101- J46 #5 with.

Here's very invaluable information on how The Beatles White Albums were numbered, and the meaning behind all the sequences... The first 25 White Albums were numbered with an'A' prefix and then a series of zeros preceding the number e. There are always seven digits following the'A' so if it was a single digit number it would be preceded by six zeroes or if it was a two digit number it would be preceded by five zeroes. It is not known what the'A' was indicative of (it may mean printed in America or Apple but neither is confirmed).
Numbers 26-99 were three digit numbers preceded with a zero and no prefix. Numbers 100 through approximately 209,999 were preceded with the correct number of zeroes to make them a seven digit number. Beginning around 210,000 to up near 590,000, they were preceded by a zero and had an'A' prefix. Copies 590,000 up to about 1,350,000 remain at seven digits using a leading zero if necessary and are prefixed with a large dot.The next batch from 1,350,000 up to some point past 2,000,000 are prefixed with an'A' but it's a thinner'A' then used earlier. From over 2,000,000 to around 2,250,000 some are prefixed with a large dot and some with the'A' From 2,250,000 up to 3,000,000 the numbers are prefixed with the abbreviation for number i. On some of these the'o' in No. Is raised with the period below it instead of beside it. For the final numbers over 3,000,000 the numbers are prefixed with a wide'A.
