What a day Together with the other two LONDON Records (please, see my other posts), I also got a MONO 'Between The Buttons' due to the sticker, the inner sleeve (up-dated to 'Big Hits' and the cheap price.
Surprise is that it presents, as well as the 'Aftermath', double matrix numbers onto vinyl! side 1: R XARL-7616-1G and LL3499-A-1G (all handwritten) side 2: R XARL-7617-1H and LL3499-B-1H (all handwritten)
Again, anybody willing to share his knowledge?
On Monday, I'll be back to this milanese shop with tens of US prints and check them all: more gems hidden? Bye, Luca

The double matrix are common on these. I have a lot of them, with even variations in the end codes, 1-D, 2-D, etc. One thing I have noticed, is that the double matrix is generally, if not always on later, bright red boxed London labels. All my variations with deep maroon labels have the single, XARL matrix.
John, thanks for your reply. I'm just looking at all my MONO 'BtB' and I have to say that this is not uncommon, at all! I apologize for my post. The only news is that my maroon labels have double matrix, instead: copy one: LL **3499A XARLXZAL7616-1E / LL **3499B XARLXZAL7617-1E (1) copy two: XARL 7616-1G LL-3499-A-1G / XARL 7617-1H LL-3499-B-1H (2)
(1) in particular, this one has matrix heavily re-worked with XARLs scartched out title on label 'between the buttons' (2) on labels 'BETWEEN THE BUTTONS'
