CONDITION

Labels: VERY GOOD +

Both are in nice shape with a number of spindle trails around each centre hole. Two tiny initials are written within the 'R' and the 'N' of the yellow lettering on side 2.

Visual: EXCELLENT +

Immaculate deep-gloss playing surfaces which are totally unworn & unmarked in strong daylight, with only a few harmless wispy aper hairlines beneath halogen light.

Audio: EXCELLENT +

Played with care on quality equipment only, this great sounding pressing plays without fault.

Cover: VERY GOOD +

Clean & strong with a bright glossy front panel where the only sign of wear is a small scuff to the lower edge. The rear panel has a small set of initial in the upper right corner and towards the lower right. Otherwise it is clean & white.

Inner-sleeve: VERY GOOD +

Clean & flat but with the original owner's name, address, and interestingly, the date of purchase ('28/8/70') is written on both sides.
