FACT 25 comes in two vinyl editions: Black and dark translucent red. It can only be differentiated when holding against a strong light source. Apparently, this is due to Martin Hannett, who ordered a second master cut after he found out that 5000 records were pressed without the initial master having been approved.
There also are two sleeve variations: A plain carton cover with glossy inner sleeve and having straight corners. Or a thick rough cardboard cover with rough inner sleeve and having rounded corners.
However, the two vinyl editions can come in either cover.
A distinction regarding the lacquer cutting (of the black vinyl) is the groove width, which is as wide as possible. For example, the United States FACTUS pressing has an A-side runout of nearly 1 1/2 inches across while it's less than 1/2" on this cutting. [This adds to the sound quality on an audiophile rig].
