The placement of the 45 RPM RCA Victor box are uniquely aligned to the song titles and top of the background featuring the image of Elvis Presley. All other text is similarly aligned. One, includes the "New Orthophonic" High Fidelity Recording statement, where it's box size is smaller than those without that statement. Further the font for the catalog is similar to the Compact 33 release.
