From that summer, some Verve 45's follow the numbering system ... ... ..... ..... 100175, 100364 the Chantels), 101038, etc.

WHILST OTHERS (mixed in among those above) have this numbering system .. 66VK299, 66VK325, 66VK260 (the Ambers), 66VK304 ...

No idea why they had 2 systems running at the same time BUT I don't think one was for in-house stuff & one for licensed in stuff .... the Chantels is a Horace Ott arranged Howard Fowles production and follows one system, whilst the Ambers (also a Horace Ott arr / Howard Fowles production) follows the other.

Don't think this had a local issue ahead of Verve & even unsure it's a 'licensed-in' production.  

Of course, MGM was part of the same set up as Verve & also used very similar numbering systems ... IN FACT ... just to confuse things ... 

The Charades MGM 45 (Key To My Happiness) has one side numbered 100481, with tuva side being 66XY482 ... so I don't think it could even be down to record studio utilised or mastering / pressing plant used.
