  1. If this is a very first issue then the matrix should be 1y 1 2y1 but my copy has 1 // 2 2 // 4 This can’t be a first issue can it ?

    • Not all ‘1st pressings’ (of any album) are A1/B1 or 1Y1/2Y1 – test pressings would be produced for every album and if rejected, a new pressing (therefore A2 or B2 depending on the side to be re-pressed) would be requested and only the approved test pressing would then be issued, so it could easily be a 2nd or 3rd test pressing that could be the final commercial release and carry a 2 or 3 in the matrix.
