Capitol Pepper's L.a. One Line Title Oddity

I am awaiting delivery of SPLHCB Capitol Rainbow label, SMAS-2653.
Side 1 is on the small print one line title label, non subsidiary.
Side 2 is also on the small print one line title label but HAS the subsidiary label!
I believe this is an L.A. pressing. How could these two one line title labels appear on the same record with one being a subsidiary label and the other not?

Ive found many Capitol Beatles albums that have one side Non subsidiary and the other subsidiary. Those labels were issued in 1968 and occasionally older style labels were mismatched with "new" labels as supplies and inventory of old labels were still available.

Nice one. I'm a fan of crossovers. I don't have any subsidiary/non-subsidiary, probably because I don't focus on the US records. I'm waiting for a bracket/oval copy of ITB to fall into my lap too.

The only difference is the label blanks, and they looked close enough to one another that the printer didn't care.

I often see no-sub/sub albums, but I have never seen one with a black label on one side and a green label on the other. Those difference were noticeable, and Capitol wouldn't have allowed them.

The mismatched labels are fairly common but what I found odd are the one line titles on both sides.

The biggest mismatch I have is a uk stereo with the Beatles. It has 2 side 2 labels, 1 is the final yellow and black Parlophone with Gramophone rims but without sold in U.K. statement, the other is a one box emi black and silver. A big mistake!!

An update on this One-Line Title, Subsidiary-Non Subsidiary Capitol Pepper's LP.
This is as I suspected an L.A. pressed LP.
We have established the non-matching, sub/none sub labels are fairly common. However it's known that the Capitol Rainbow one line title SPLHCB on the non-subsidiary label is relatively interesting to collectors while the subsidiary one line title is not.
In effect, I have a collectable on one side and a not so collectible on the other. Agreed?

All the LA copies with sub print have the title on one line ("small print"), whereas most of the copies from 1967-68 don't. It's collectible because of the time when it came out.

Frank, have you seen many of these specific mismatched, one line title examples, sub-non sub?

That's a great find. I suspect such examples are rare because the mismatch is so easy to spot.

The one-line version ("small print") is known without the sub print only from Los Angeles plant. It may exist from Scranton, but none have obviously surfaced. The small print subsidiary label exists from LA and Scranton, with Scranton being more common.

Here's a Scranton copy...https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Beatles-Sgt-Pe...K4AAOSwAaJaC5zH
