The primary difference between this Version #17 and its predecessors is that it was pressed with new plates and has completely "new" matrix/runout information in the "dead wax" area. According to some owners, the sleeve may have either a higher back edge or a higher front edge. SST may have used up older sleeves and then printed different sleeves in the middle of this release.
