House in a fully laminated, inner-flipover mono gatefold cover but with both mono AND stereo number in the upper right corner of the rear panel.

Complete with unused cut-out sheet & original plain white 'Patent Nos.1 125 555'  inner-sleeve.

 

CONDITION

Labels: EXCELLENT +

A clean & unworn set with a handful of well-aimed spindle trail around each centre hole.

Disc: EXCELLENT +

Super-clean, unworn playing surfaces which bear just one or two very small/light marks on side 1 beneath halogen light. Played just a few times on quality equipment, the sound throughout is flawless.

Cover: EXCELLENT +

A 1st class example of this hard to find cover which retains a vibrant panels and an unscratched all-round with no 'thumbnail' wrinkles front or rear. The only significant sign of wear is a small bend to the lower left corner. Both panels inside are immaculate. The spine is fully laminated & worded and all seams are smooth & unsplit.

Inner-sleeve: NEAR MINT

Cut-out  Sheet: MINT
