Played with care on quality equipment only, this great sounding pressing from early stampers plays clean & clearly throughout with no distractions or faults.
A clean, strong & fully intact example of this early cover type with light handling & storagewear only. The front panel has light rubbing from storage and a handful of small 'thumbnail' wrinkles towards the opening edge. There is some shelfwear to the lower corners and a small mark at the lower end of the opening edge. The rear panel is clean overall with a small name written in the upper left corner. All flipbacks are in-place, and both seams and the fully worded spine are undamaged
