 Here is another A side - 780651. Looks identical to the first image (468316) except for the overall color.

 That new {Image #627547}, likewise with Bridgeport typesetting, appears to have been pressed by Shelley Products in Huntington Station, NY. I have a copy of "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Gene Autry (6-375) with this "flat" attribute, suggesting the catalogue changeover to 4-38610 would've actually taken place in 1952.

 Uploaded a B-side label scan ... while the typesetting appears identical to image #471393, the profile is flat rather than tapered toward the spindle hole.

 That might have been a consequence of the Bridgeport strike. Also, I've noticed on Columbia 45's of the 1950-57 period that on labels printed on dull finish maroon paper, the ink usually had a twinge of gold in it, but seemed to come across more silver-ish than on labels printed on shiny maroon paper.

 I think your dead right about this record. It does have a serif-ish stamp in the dead wax and the label measures 3.655" diameter. What I noticed strange was that the text is nearer to silver than gold.

 Because Columbia's Bridgeport, CT plant was on strike at the time of this release (despite the label typesetting coming from that plant), this looks like a contract pressing, either by RCA Victor's Canonsburg, PA plant (with small, serif-ish machine-stamped type and a "C" in the deadwax) or Capitol's Scranton, PA plant (with the anvil insignia stamped onto the deadwax) - both plants used 3.625" diameter labels for their Columbia pressings as opposed to Columbia's own 3.5" diameter label trim.
