 ppint is more right than me, ( i did start a forum for examples of the inverted tri-angle label examples but it appears no one else was interested in populatering it ). I think it started out as microgroove- to distingiusih from 78 groove records (as if playing funny at that speed and being 3" smaller in diameter wasnt enough of a difference ).. I forgot the Stereo logo device ! - DG group were early in the stereo format, I wonder what the first us on a 7" was )
Philips (Germany) were using a mix of labels in 1955 releases with Minigroove and a square box with 45 inside, and the inverted triangle logo , I cannot recall a Philips with the Stereo device on (found one in 1968 , printing is a little squashed !!)

 yes, m in an equilateral triangle balanced on its point = advice that it's mono;
(s/stereo &) two circles overlapping sides = advice that you've got a stereo record;
polydor group & licenced labels, though not necessarily records mfd & distributed by polydor for independent companies.
spread also to philips group records - yr hmbl srppint. does not know whether this was when a lot of philips group product started getting mfd by polydor, after philips & polydor formed polygram, or when - some catter out there may know (or have records :-) )

n.b. the advice was not 100% reliable-upon.

 Now I know.

 M was the designator for Microgroove accrossPolydor group labels

 I believe the 45 is mono. Anything to do with the 'M' in the triangle on the label?

 Groovemaster dj... or anyone else... is this mono or stereo?

 You are absolutely right. A subtle but actual difference. Bear in mind that every time a set of labels were printed over the basic red Polydor stock blank, 50,000 copies would be the print run, of A + B sides.
The fact that this record made number one is a sure indicator that probably other variants will surface, along the way.

Addenda: The scans supplied by camshaft, #'s 443626, 443639, are in essence from exactly the same label print run as those posted by cronkey, #'s 46175, 46176. The only difference is that one copy is not dinked, and the other has a 3-pin dink.

 In reply, perhaps my record is slightly different. If you look at the bottom - the group name and the composer line are so close together compare to NANOCYAR's scan, which is spaced a bit more.

 camshaft, is your copy different from the other three already shown?
