Hi padesu, Mate thanks for posting the uncuts .They are very nice and great as a set . When you hold one beside a regular version do you sense that the cut is all that is missing on them. Also the thickness of the vinyl. With regards to the one on Ebay that B'man alerted us to I must admit I find it incredible that all of a sudden we now have a seller basically repeating what We have concluded in theory and shown here in this actual thread. I have no doubt he bought it at some markets but having all this Test pressing info passed down from a Dad to a daughter. !!!( I am a cynical prick )
Plenty of sellers lurk in these Forums Also padesu a great post with the UK demo in the other thread. Mate you are on fire and burning up the scanner !! thanks again for posting the "Test cuts" !!!!
Hi stonedkoala Thanks for your kind comments,yes that thought occured to me as it is quite something of a coincidence. The stampers on each disc would indicate that they were not first off the press as none have anything like 1B which you would expect as on the demos but who knows?? I bought them over a period of time from the famous Beanos store (largest in Europe)before they went bust and the guy there said that was how a lot of record club editions!! were sent out ...not sure what he meant then and still don't know now but with all of us on the case we may be able to piece the clues together. In every respect the vinyl seems as though it is of stock issue quality just untrimmed and centre not punched out (had to customise the sleeves though as records too big to fit)
Very nice Padesu! Thanks! My thoughts on these early UK plain labels are the following: Considering that: - real tests w/ tests design labels exist; - some of the plain labels found have designs which clearly show there were not first pressings; I would rather think that these plain labels are just uncut - or partially uncut - because they just avoided the last step of the manufacturing process ;
That was different in HKong where they would press both types on purposes of course;
Yet, the exceptional thickness of SOME plain labels [5x5's copy from Peter] may well have indeed a different meaning, like maybe a test thing. But this is rare, as most of these plain labels have standard thickness..
I find the picture of the Poison Ivy Aepply copy (it's in his hands).
Also I find this info on an old Record Collector magazine: Decca F 11742 Poison Ivy/Fortune Teller (7", scheduled for release but cancelled; some copies exist with solid centre, but these are possibly record club or export issues, 8/63)
Looks like it's one of that record club-solid centre ones.

Great photo Rik, Thankyou very much for finding this image and showing us. First time I have seen this colour photo. very very nice. The question still remains is this small hole pressing for a "record club" issue or is it simply an uncut copy that made it only thus far in the manufacturing process. Thanks again Rik.

RECORD on label and on the run off etched Rolling Stones Record RS19100 A1 and on the other side RS19100 B1.

A special thanks to the Koala for hipping me to the MT tax code Come On! Thanks again! Got it today but both of my Stock and Demos are EXACTLY the same as what Peter posted earlier, so no reason to duplicate! Are there other early Stones records people have with the M / T Tax code? Please post them!
