  2. (2)The reproduction is missing the phrase “in Color!” in the lower middle (below “THE BEATLES”)

  3. (3)The reproduction is missing “FE3283” in the left-middle bottom border.

  4. (4)The reproduction is missing the NSS number “65/293” in the lower right.

  5. (5)The reproduction is missing the crop marks in the corners.

  6. (6)The reproduction has different colors in various sections of the poster.
