CONDITION

DISC

Labels: MINT -

A pristine pair showing just a single light around each unworn centre hole.

Visual: MINT -

Immaculate factory-fresh which are unmarked and  'as new' in strong daylight. Closer inspection beneath halogen light reveals nothing more than  a couple of few light wispy paper hairlines & a sparkling rainbow shine visible beneath halogen light. You will not find a cleaner looking example.

Audio: MINT

Played just ONCE, the sound quality of this magnificent mix is unmatched by any other pressing. Apart from two light ticks on 'Octopus' Garden', the sound quality is flawless and wonderful throughout.

Cover: EXCELLENT +

This fine example is clean and glossy all-round with a sparkling unscratched, unworn high-gloss laminate. There is just a light bend towards the upper left corner resulting in a small bubble in the laminate just to the right of the spine wording, together with a small rough area which appear to be a manufacturing fault.  All corners are in sharp and square with the only sign of use being a small bubble beneath the laminate in the upper left corner tip. However both opening edges are sharp and clean. and the seams and fully worded spine are unstressed.

Inner-sleeve: MINT -

'As new'.
