Sorry if this has been previously discussed, but it is new to me. 
Here is what the site says:

""A Factory Sample", test-pressing given to Vini Reilly by Anthony H. Wilson in 1978. This ultra-rare edition features smaller than final size mock-up of the final artwork by Peter Saville and is numbered 1 of 20. It was hand signed to Vini Reilly by Tony Wilson."

Well, another copy surfaced, owned by Hooky.

So, Tony apparently gave each of the 20 copies personally to each one, handwriting the name of the respective addressee.

And moreover, Tony gave the 1st copy to Vini Reilly, and only gave the 10th to Hooky on Xmas Eve. Well, it was supposed to be for promotion, right? Then why give copies to the bands members, anyway?
