CHRISTMAS SLEEVE 1964
If you were buying a record as a present for somebody you could pay a few pence more for this special Christmas sleeve (EMI group only). It was a gatefold sleeve and had a Christmas message inside and a  "from........" where you could write your name.
The sleeve is made of stiff card with poly lined window at the front.
