Is this American or Canadian?

I recently purchased an empty CD long box for “Let it Be” and would like to try and obtain the correct disc for it. The problem I’m having is that the cat# on the box edge is C2 46447 and it has the “Apple” logo on rear which appears to point to a Canadian release. But on the bottom rear of the box it’s printed “Manufactured by Capitol Records. Inc .,1750 N. Vine St. Hollywood. USA.” It also has the code DIDX 2250 on bottom r/h corner. The U.S.A. versions appear to have the cat# CDP 7 46447 without Apple Logo, but Canadian releases have a manufactured by Capitol -Canadian address! Images attached if anyone can advise on this?

I recently picked up a Paperback Writer / Rain 45.  The cover has the butcher image both front and back.  Please see images.  I have been unable to find any reference to a single release with this cover.  Can anyone shed any light for me?Paperback-Writer-back.jpegImage Enlarger

@kbaird62, that’s really strange. I’m not seeing that anywhere else. And, on the other cover for this single, Rain is listed first.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Father handed 6000 LPs down to me as he entered into a nursing home and can’t take them. He worked in HiFi and did a radio station program for over 30 years. The LPs are in mint condition play wise but I couldn’t ascertain whether they were original pressings. In the research I’ve done, nothing seems to quite fit the description of the covers. Wondering if Australia had different releases to other countries. I know Australia had a different Magical Mystery Tour cover than all other countries. The White Album has no serial number but is embossed. The Parlophone labels are neither gold nor yellow but white. Can anyone confirm whether these are original pressings or later releases? They are definitely pre 80s though.20240309_154417.jpgImage Enlarger

The Magical Mystery Tour looks like the one I have. It was a special release from The World Record Club.

Can’t speak to the others, though, since my own collection are later releases (couldn’t afford LPs as a kid) but my copy of the White Album does have a serial number so I would presume that yours would be later still.
