That cat label on the left looks cut out by hand...

Before I read this comment, I wanted to say that the left label looks like a repro. Because the black is not really deep black and it is also blurred, typical of a picture that was scanned and the black colour separated into RGB colours and then printed with a colourprinter. Therefore I would assume that the left is a repro - but scanned from a different original label, so two distinct designs probably did exist.

I thought I'd post this here because it will otherwise be lost in the look what I just got thread. Prepro / colour trial Mercury Commuter - very play worn but still special!
