Default Meet the Beatles Mono LP question

I am just trying to figure out what I can about an album I found in a cabinet I had purchased at an auction. It appears to be a second pressing from Scranton, but there are some things that are inconsistent with what I have read on various sites and though I’d ask. The dead space stamp has T1-2047-F3 on side 1 and T2-2047-G2 on side 2. It has BMI on “I want to hold your hand” on side 1 and ASCAP on everything else. All of this has led me to think it was a second pressing. However, all the samples I have seen of the label shows 2 lines for “I want to hold your hand” with BMI and Lennon-McCartney listed on line 2. My copy has 3 lines: Title/BMI/Writers. This is consistent with pressing 3 if it had BMI also listed for song 2 (I saw her standing there). It almost seems to be a hybrid of pressings 2 and 3.

I am more just curious than anything, but want to make sure the odd nature of it doesn’t make it a rarity. It has scratches, but is playable. I’m not really interested in selling, but just would like to know what I have. The price was right regardless….

Thank you for your thoughts on this….

If you don't get a good answer here, this other site will more than likely get you an answer:

Easy guide to the MTB - side 1:

1st Var - No pub. credits
2nd Var - 1st track BMI
3rd Var - first 2 tracks BMI
4th Var - All track BMI

Sometimes the label variations did switch during transition periods.
