CONDITION

Disc

Labels: EXCELLENT

Both are clean & bright with no major spindle markings either side.

Visual: VERY GOOD

Clean & glossy playing surfaces but with several noticeable hairlines and surface marks each side.
Inspection beneath halogen light reveals marks from inner-sleeve removal and some additional lighter surface marks.

Audio: VERY GOOD 

Played a number of times but the sound is clean & unworn throughout.
An occasional tick is audible in the runout groove and between tracks but there are no major faults or distractions anywhere.

Cover: VERY GOOD

Clean & firm with some storagewear to the front panel which includes a few 'thumbnail' & spine wrinkles.
There is light shelfwear to the corners but both opening edges are sharp and unworn.
The exposed rear panel is clean & unblemished and all flipbacks are undamaged.
The top spine has some wear in the middle but the the spine is clearly worded.

Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD

Clean with some storage wrinkling, one small tear but no writing or seam splits.
