    It's very possible one of the many jacket fabricators Columbia used at the time did not have a number to indicate them. As for numbers, '2' would indicate an origin from Imperial Paper Box Corp., Inc. of Brooklyn, NY, if Bruce Spizer's The Beatles' Story On Capitol Records - Part 2: The Albums is of any guide in this regard. There were other numbers, as well, such as '4' (probably for Imperial Packing Co., Inc., Indianapolis, IN) and '8' (likely Imperial Packing as well). Odd numbers on the lower right-hand corner of back covers would have meant fabrication by Modern Album, whether Long Island, NY ('3') or Terre Haute, IN ('5').

    I've got a number of CS/CL "dual" jackets with 6-eye stereo LPs inside from the '58 - '63 timeframe that do not have the number on the sleeve, as well as a few CS-only jackets that also do not have the number.
