There's already a post about this but it was a couple years old and i wasn't sure if anyone would see my comment. I just happened to inherit a copy of Led Zeppelin 3 from my stepdad. Has the engravement "so mote be it". I know this has something to do with it being an earlier copy, but every post I see half the people say that the first copy just said "so mote be it" and the other half say "do what thou wilt" signals the first copies. Does anyone know for sure?

So Mote it Be was engraved on the early pressings.

Do What Thou Wilt on later pressings.

However the absolute first first white label promo/test pressings has both enscripted on each side of the vinyl. As more came out the words were removed on the vinyl all together
