This is an [l211933 pressing as indicated by "ɑ" stamped in runouts, and the letter "A" embossed in the middle of the inner pressing rings on one or both sides.

Similar copies were plated by Allied but pressed by [l27576.  These will have AL-SP language in the runouts, and may have E A S T (or sometimes only the T is visible) embossed on the inner edge of the  pressing ring.
[r355382 has AL-SP but does not show evidence of the E A S T emboss.
[r13888896 has both the AL-SP runout etch and the E A S T emboss.
[r10895683 has both AL-SP etch and E A S T emboss, but no stickers (including barcode sticker) on the front and rear sleeves.

Some copies may have a promo gold stamp on the upper right of the rear sleeve and a hype sticker below.

The front and back sides are flipped top to bottom, so one will always appear upside-down.
