I've recently found a vinyl recorded in Apple Records for Germany market.
How it could be produced by Apple Records in 1967 since the company was founded in 1978 ?
Can anyone help me with this riddle?

It might be the 1971 reissue of the album Apple did, but most versions of that I've seen on the internet have a yellow bar at the top. However, this Japanese version of the 1971 reissue of the album almost looks like it, except the Apple logo on the back is different:
"Duit On Mon Dei"

@magus you mean 1968?
Yes - 1968 - sorry for typo, however I was still in shock after finding vinyl produced before company was created (at least it appears such) ...
Do you think the record would show the year of the recording of Pepper, not the date of making the actual vinyl?
[one more update for mypost]
Assuming 072 in the issue number (1C 072-04 177) would be the year when the vinyl was made.... this mean - the record I've found is of 1972. hmmm...

@magus I think you're right that it's from 1972 because if you look at that page you posted again and click on 'record company' (EMI Electrola GmbH), then press 'More' the following is displayed:
German subdivision of EMI Records from 1972 to 2002.
Responsible holding company of the EMI Electrola trademark / label.
Also operating recording and mastering studios as well as a vinyl pressing plant until 1993.
2002 was a year of reorganisation within the German EMI companies. EMI Electrola GmbH & Co. KGmerged with the Virgin Schallplatten GmbH & Co. KG and formed EMI Music Germany GmbH & Co. KG.
This is a company profile, please use this page only as 2nd label on releases with the appearance of "EMI Electrola GmbH", where appropriate.
For "EMI Electrola"-branded releases (1972-2002), use EMI Electrola.
For "ELECTROLA"-branded EMI releases use Electrola. For "Columbia"-branded EMI releases (usually 1952-1972) use Columbia.
If you look at the bold sentences, the LP seems to be from 1972 the earliest because of the label on it. So, 1967 probably just referred to the release date of the original album. I might be wrong, though.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
