The first pressings were made in Memphis, TN. Trail off #'s>U-129-45 72 & U-128-45 72. The following article from Presleyana magazine will give you more info. >>> The Elvis Sun records were originally, it was thought, pressed in a plant in Memphis, and in a plant in Los Angeles, California. It is rumored that there was a third release of the originals, pressed in Philadelphia which are identical to the California pressings. All pressings have serial numbers etched into the trail-off. The records are Sun #209 "That's All Right" (1954), #210 "Good Rockin' Tonight" (1954), #215 "Milk Cow Blues Boogie" (1954), #217 "Baby, Let's Play House" (1955) and #223 "Mystery Train" (1955). The rarest issues are 209 and 215, then 217, while 210 and 223 are considered to be the easiest to find.

The first four records have engravings in the trail-off that end with the number 72. The fifth, Sun 223, Mystery Train, ends with the number 20. The Memphis pressings, except for Mystery Train, have three ΒΌ inch circular indentations around the center hole, forming a perfect triangle, or Greek Delta. Hence, the name Delta pressings. These marks are not found on Mystery Train, nor on the Los Angeles or Philadelphia pressings.

It is this lack of press marks that may cause original suns from the other plants to mistakenly be wrongly identified as fakes or bootlegs. Also, misinformed or unscrupulous buyers/sellers have claimed that the 72 denotes the year of issue out of ignorance or to lower prices. The Los Angeles and Philadelphia pressings are identical to the Memphis pressings, except for the press marks, and the Philadelphia pressings, we learn, can be further identified by a tiny MSI stamped into the vinyl, supposedly for Memphis Sun Inc.. All of the original Elvis Sun releases came in plain brown sleeves. Sun studios later started producing sleeves that incorporated the yellow sun rays.

Collectors often display the original Suns with the sun ray sleeve, but when the record was new, it came in a plain sleeve.
