    2) The first described kind of inneer sleeve
    3) The back cover with the Trident logo

    Hello Ferdy,
    I have several UK copies of “Sheer Heart Attack” and thanks to this article I was almost able to determine which one is earlier. But there are still issues. None of my inner sleeve has has three of the four corner cut! There are two inner with two top cut-off corner, and on this inner sleeve has inscription dated to 1974. Could not the variant with two corners cut off be earlier than with three corners cut?
    So there are a few inner sleeves, which cut off all 4 corners. It certainly later versions.
    Kind regards,

      Thanks for your message. Actually it’s not quite sure how to tell it for sure… as you know sleeve were printed in a different factory from The vinyl… So we have no detailed source about that coupling.

    Hi have a copy with first press sleeve and inner but 4U/4U matrix vinyl.
    First pressing second press run?
    According to the RC articles stampers were not always used in chronological order?

    • Ferdy says:

      yes this may be true. Another early issue was found with 3u/1u matrices so… a very first issue of SHA is very hard to identify..

    I recently found a copy pressed in Denmark.

    The matrixes used are 4U/3U. The sleeve is from the UK with cat. no. 0C 062-96025 on it and with the Trident logo in the bottom right corner. The inner sleeve is with four cut corners. This danish press has got no unique cat. no. and EMC 3061 is the only one printed on the label.

    Here’s a link for my submission on discogs with pictures of the labels: http://www.discogs.com/Queen-Sheer-Heart-Attack/release/7172230 (I reused the pictures of inner and outer sleeve from another submission, so only the pictures of the labels are new)

    And thank you for this amazing Queen-ressource!

  5. So, if I have the 3u/4u version with no Trident logo. Do I have a 3rd pressing? Or a first pressing? I just don't know, you know.

    P.S: Yes, I'm talking about the last shown in the post and photographed by Brian Asworth, the one that says: "Uk Inner 3rd version", not the 4u/3u version. I needed to point that out.
