Should this be WLX 1609-2 rather than 16080-2?

Are they both on commercial labels or is/are they test pressing(s)?

These are non-US masters.  Often the European issues carried no take numbers 
at all.

I'd suggest trying to synchronize one against the other as David Hamilton 
demonstrated some years ago.  If they can be made to lock, they are the same 
take.  If not, different.
