By the 3rd September this had sold half a million copies, and by 27th November it became the first Beatles record to sell One Million copies in Britain alone. It also achieved the rare feat of two separate spells at number 1.

As there are no significant sleeve changes, I've concentrated the scan above on the label detail.
As you can more clearly see now, the small "rights of the manufacturer" writing is in Mixed upper/lower case for the first pressings. The "45" on the catalogue number has gone forever, and note the push-out centre has no writing in it for this release.

The most significant change is the printing of the composer names ... this release establishes "Lennon-McCartney" as the format of their composer credit for the rest of their Beatle career.

Next below, you can see the U.S. "Swan label" version, released 16th September 1963.

And finally, the picture disc version released in England as part of the,
"It Was Twenty Years Ago" series, on 22nd August 1983.
