    Super Deluxe vinyl defect(s)?

    Though very late to the show, I was able to secure all 9 of the studio sdbs editions recently. My turntable was destroyed in a move 6 months ago, so the boxes sat on a shelf for a month until I bought a new one. I finally started spinning vinyl this week and found a bizarre error/scratch/pressing flaw in “No Quarter” on the non-companion vinyl (photo attached). There appears to be a numeral 2 over the first half of the track. It caused a 3 or 4 rotation skip during the song, which is how I knew to look for the scratch. After that skip played through, the track finished but the needle wouldn’t move past the end of the song to “The Ocean”. So, I cleaned the album and did a needle drop at the end of NQ. It progressed to TO fine. Due to a call for work, I did not play NQ again to see if cleaning fixed that minor skip. So, does anybody else have a “2” in NQ? I suppose a hair or something may have blown in (wild conjecture, obviously), but the “scratch” seems way to complex to be a scratch. It seems to be part of the pressing.
