The green vinyl and also the orange vinyl differ from the other colours with the sleeve too as the Adam and the Ants image is positioned more to the right whereas all of the other pressings they are to the left.
The image below shows the sleeve for the green vinyl and below it the other pressings.

The centre label of the record has been spray painted in black to cover up the fact that originally the labels used were for The Birthday Party - Welcome to the Car Smash bootleg (pictured below)
