These OK labels are fairly common at the time.
I have images in the range 6970 - 7047.
6970 also has BMI stamped on the label. Everything in capitals.
I do not think these are real tests; possibly promo/demo issues which could be
produced easily this way.
Other promo issues have nornal white printed labels with "For Radio Stations"
and show the playing time.

The matrix numbers are in the dead wax (CO48881-1A & 48882-1A).  Obvious question - why isn't this a regular OKEH label?
