And then there are those Fontana pressings of the early stereo Szells,from Germany and Holland.I even have one as a Bertelsmann club pressing.

Not to mention the CBS/Coronets from Australia.The stereo Bruno Walters I have,all have unique covers.If these were similar rock records,they'd all be worth a ton of money.

Well, there were two years of mono-only releases before the first 
stereos in late 1958.
