This version of Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky is a color different than I’ve ever seen listed. It is a turquoise color, very different from the darker green that is much more common. Also listed as being used for the cover are pink and orange, but I’ve seen two different levels of blue out there in the wild as well.
After learning of a very helpful website from noted collector Guy Minnebach, this version is from 1949-1955 and not one of the 1960s reissues. I also examined the pale blue version I posted previously, and the pale blue predates the turquoise and was certainly one of the 1949 versions.
