Default BOB Merchbar / Arms / O2 - Vinyl Question

At the centre of most vinyl records in the dead wax by the label, there are markings - known as matrix run-offs. Etched means they were scratched into the master stamper by hand and stamped means a machine did it.

The STANDARD US vinyl has these matrix run offs:

Matrix / Runout (Side A etched): 88985-45601-1-A CB
Matrix / Runout (SIde A stamped): P.USA -45353-
Matrix / Runout (Side B etched): 88985-45601-1-B CB
Matrix / Runout (Side B stamped): P.USA 45353-
Matrix / Runout (Side C etched): 88985-45601-1-C CB
Matrix / Runout (Side C stamped): P.USA -45354-

My BOB is still in safe keeping in the US, but I'm fairly sure the US BOB will simply be the SAME record with the different cover.

So couple of questions for everyone that has a BOB AND has opened it (no argument if you are keeping it sealed):

1) If yours was from Merchbar or the US Store - is your matrix data the same as the US Std above or different? Does your black sleeve say printed in the US, or nothing?
2) If you got yours in the UK via "Arms" or "O2" or Store (in your order) is yours the same as the US std above or different? Does your black sleeve say printed in the US, Printed in the EU, or nothing?

Answer with location - ie Merchbar, US Store, UK Store, Arms, O2
And Same, or Different

If it's different and you can be bothered to add what it is then great, but for right now the main aim is to try and understand whether the UK versions were printed in the EU or sent over from the US.

Sorry about the late answer. I've finally been able to open it and enjoy it.

here are my 2 cents.
I got it from merchbar.

the matrix run outs says (etched):

Side A:
88985-45601-1-A
CB
28244.1(3)...

Side B:
88985-45601-1-B
CB
28244.2(3)...

Side C:
88985-45601-1-C
CB
28244.3(3)...

On the back sleeve there is no mention like "printed in the US" but there is the FBI anti piracy warning.

I hope this helps.

Great thanks - mine is still on the way.

From what you have added there, the FBI logo pretty much confirms that is a US version (which you would expect from Merchbar) AND that the vinyl is also a different pressing from the main run.
