House in a front laminated 'Ernest J. Day' printed mono cover with the earlier wide flpibakcs.
Complete with its original 'Use Emitex..' rice-paper lined inner-sleeve.
Both playing surface are clean & glossy with just some harmless wispy paper hairlines from the inner-sleeve visible beneath halogen light. The sound is clean & unworn throughout with all of the power and presence you expect of an early copy.
A fine example of this scarce cover variant with a bright unworn front panel laminate which bears a trace of storagewear but no 'thumbnail' creases. There is a small bent to the upper left corner only and no wear to either opening edge. The rear panel is clean & bright with just a small blemish towards the lower right corner. Both seams and the spine are smooth & unworn.
Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT +
