CUT CORNERS
The "Modern Sound" (No 2) sleeves were used starting in Nov 1963 when the singles were issued in compatible stereo. They raised the price 10 cents, but only briefly. They reverted back to 39 cents and cut the 49 cent price corner off the sleeve (example below). By about Apr 1965 they were back to the 39 cent (no 1) sleeve which was used for the rest of the run until 1969.
