  There are test pressings with completely white labels that are housed in standard picture sleeves. They were probably used for promotion as well. But there are also one-sided test pressings. One of these were sold on Ebay in 2003 for GBP 100 and was described like this: "Overkill, 7" single in white paper sleeve, No BRO67. This has only the A side cut and is date stamped '31st Jan 1979' on the sleeve. Label is white with 'Motorhead - Overkill - BRO67A' written in felt pen. Sleeve is a bit grubby (also has serial no. on it) but otherwise both record and sleeve are in excellent condition". In November 2013 another one-sided copy was sold on Ebay. This was housed in a white die cut sleeve with date stamped '31st Jan 1979' and hand written "Overkill, BRO 67". The label also had handwriting "Motorhead, A-side, BRO 67, Rejected 5/2/79". Seller (echo2ndhand, located in Lincoln) wrote "why it was rejected is absolutely unclear as it plays a version of 'Overkill' without fault".

In April a copy with the one-sided B-side Too Late Too Late was sold on Ebay. It was housed i a white die cut sleeve with handwriting that said "BRO 67B-14 [?], G, Motorhead, Too Late Too Late". On label is written "...29/1/79, Approved 5/2/79".

The Bronze EMI releases are pressed by Hayes pressing plant for EMI at Middlesex near London. A seller of test pressings on Ebay claims that Hayes usually only pressed 12-15 white label test pressings.
