Got my MT variation of the 1st ep today. Here are the scans. First glance, looks identical to Tim's copy. A BIG Thank you to Tim for hipping me to these variations. Like I always say, no one has or knows all about the records, that's why we make such a good team over here at the Vikings. And Also, a big thanks to everyone on this board!
Also of note is the West Bros. Printing on the rear sleeve. I had one, but with a K / T record label.

Woow, that's a nice one John Thank you for your kind words as well.
I really wonder how come that this EP is even existing with the MT tax code? As I mentioned a few posts up here, this EP was released on January 17th 1964 and the general tax code in UK was by then KT. The change from MT to KT took place on July 1st 1963!!!
Well, as we know from before, they did not pay that much of attention to details, as long as they could sell a few records, everything was alright I guess. But it makes it fun for us collectors, you never know what is around the corner.

How about the second single "I Wanna Be Your Man" / "Stoned" ? This was released on November 1st 1963. As we have the first EP from January -64 with MT code.... may be that "I Wanna Be Your Man" may exist with MT as well......?

Good point, Jan....I just checked all of mine....NO M/ Ts on Stoned or Stones, at least at this Time....but you are right, it could exist...but what I REALLY want is a misprint, one side K /T and one side M / T! That would be groovy!

Here is the 3rd Variation of Come On / I Want to be Loved...Label is the same as Peter's but NO K / T in the dead wax!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....this is driving me nuts, but I love it. One more coming with the same labels, so shall wait and see!
I bought a few days ago Beggars Banquet uk export to Japan vinyl lp. with the J/T code below the label. like you see in the picture. Yesterday i saw the same record WITHOUT this code below the label. I always thought there's only one label combination of this record.Anyone knew this combination before? Or can anyone explaine this?

Your spot on Rootsman ... NCB does stand for Nordic/Nordisk Copyright Bureau. I had to check in with the "Guru "over at stones7.com to get an answer. Initial export pressings contained the logo but then became generic and basically permanent along with the other copyright markings. So many pressings we see with it , does not mean it is an export pressing.
BTW Tim has just posted an incredible new Indian 45 find of HYSYM with a new non conforming type of catalogue numbering.
