Very NICE George and fintail!
I was fortunate enough to have acquired a bronze E-type from Bob Willis out in Arizona a couple of years back. Here it is between two typical examples.

And here is the Leyland Tanker with the BP "decal". Sorry, a bit of an over-exposed photo

Nice error with two labels Brad. We found a 1964 Fred Bronner blister packed original 54 Ambulance with both a large cross label a bit too high on it's door, and then a small cross label placed over it in the proper spot on the exposed side of the blister in a local store in the 60s. Thank God we never opened it for display, it is still shown as found 45 years later in that factory sealed blister. How and why was the older small label placed over the newer larger style at the factory? This model still amazes me when I see it, and it always brings a smile to my face. Your double label is an indication that these labels may have been applied by a machine, how cool.......kwakers

Thats a nice Error, Dan. Seems similar with my Sf #11 Mercedes Scaffolding truck with two (in total 3) labels:
