The MGM mono LP's were usually issued in a cover with the mono numbering scheme (MGM used a prefix of E for mono's, a prefix of SE for stereo's). The highest number in the MGM disocgraphy for which I see a mono cover is E-4534, the Cowsills' "We Can Fly". However, the later numbered mono's were issued in a stereo cover with either a plain black Mono sticker, or a multi-colored DJ Not For Sale Monaural sticker, as pictured here.

some more MGM mono scans. The cover of the Connie Francis LP has her dressed up like a Bonnie-like moll, a bit campy.

This Kangaroo LP is the highest number I've yet found in the MGM mono discography.
