I believe that the Dear Companion LP was originally issued as Prestige 7801 in 1960 and that Prestige INT 13031 was a reissue from 1962 (it was reviewed in the February 10, 1962 issue of Billboard).

I'm not convinced you are correct about this. Jazzdisco does indeed say that PR 7801 was released in 1960, but it also identifies PR 7801 as a reissue of Prestige International, PR-INT 13031. See, http://www.jazzdisco.org/prestige-records/catalog-7800-series/. The Both Sides Now preview Prestige reference says PR 7801 was issued in 1970 and is a reissue of Prestige Folklore 14007. Both Sides Now already has a completed Prestige Folklore discography and it shows Folklore FL 14007 to have been released in 1963, and also identifying it as a reissue of Prestige International PR-INT 13031. See, http://www.bsnpubs.com/fantasy/folklore/folklore.html.
So I continue to believe that the Prestige International version was released first.

I just checked out the Both Sides Now preview for Prestige International, showing PR 13031 having been released in 1962, to which I have changed the SHS release date. The Prestige PR 7800 series is a reissue line.

That seems correct to me. I was fairly confident about the 1962 date for Prestige INT 13031 since it was consistent with the date I found for Prestige INT 13027, a Tossi Aaron LP that I recently added to SHS.
Until today I was not familiar with the 7800 series.
