Labels: NEAR MINT
A pristine pair with just a small handful of well-aimed spindle trails around the side 2 centre hole, with even less on 1.
Visual: NEAR MINT
Superb deep-gloss clean playing surfaces which are unmarked in strong daylight with just a small number of harmless wispy mark form the inner-sleeve directly beneath halogen light.
Audio: NEAR MINT
Beautifully clean & clear audio throughout with no crackle, clicks, pops or any other issues.
Cover: EXCELLENT +
A clean & strong example with, like all of these early covers, a slightly off-white front panel but no 'thumbnails' or any other significant signs of wear. There is slight shelfwear bruising to the lower corner tips and no tears or feathering to the opening edges. The exposed rear panel is very clean overall with just a small number written in the upper left corner and another in the lower left. All flipbacks, both seams and the spine are tight, smooth & fully intact.
Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD +
Clean & flat but with small seams split to each side.
