Here's very invaluable information on how The Beatles White Albums were numbered, and the meaning behind all the sequences...The first 25 White Albums were numbered with an'A' prefix and then a series of zeros preceding the number e. There are always seven digits following the'A' so if it was a single digit number it would be preceded by six zeroes or if it was a two digit number it would be preceded by five zeroes. It is not known what the'A' was indicative of (it may mean printed in America or Apple but neither is confirmed). Numbers 26-99 were three digit numbers preceded with a zero and no prefix.
Numbers 100 through approximately 209,999 were preceded with the correct number of zeroes to make them a seven digit number. (never having a letter prefix).
Beginning around 210,000 to up near 590,000, they were preceded by a zero and had an'A' prefix. Copies 590,000 up to about 1,350,000 remain at seven digits using a leading zero if necessary and are prefixed with a large dot. The next batch from 1,350,000 up to 2,000,000 are prefixed with a thinner'A' then used earlier. From over 2,000,000 to around 2,250,000 some are prefixed with a large dot and some with the'A' From 2,250,000 up to 3,000,000 the numbers are prefixed with the abbreviation for number i.
On some of these the'o' in No. Is raised with the period below it instead of beside it. For the final numbers over 3,000,000 the numbers are prefixed with a wide'A. Please make sure the items you see above are exactly the items you are seeking to add to your collection... The item "BEATLES'68 L.
