Discs: MINT -
All discs appear unplayed and all playing surfaces are factory-fresh. Only 'Sgt. Pepper' shows any signs of wear but that was due only to being inside its cover without an inner which has resulted in some minor hairlines.
All discs play perfectly and sound superb.
Covers: EX+/MINT -
All are clean & unworn. There are tiny 1cm stresses to the upper seams of 4 covers, but the lower seams and the spines are perfect.
Box: MINT -
This immaculate example is clean & fully intact. It's only sign of wear is a small bruise to the front upper right corner.
Very few of these sets were sold before in this set, and this is the only one I have ever seen. So don't miss out!
