verifying that this copy was manufactured from the first masterrun, the first set of mothers and extremely early stampers - as such one of the very first copies pressed.
Vinyl is housed in a generic blue printed and polylined generic company inner sleeve and ultiomately in a pinched spine, front 'Clarifoil' laminated Clout & Baker manufactured picture cover with stereo/mono indicator hole on upper left back.
Condition: VG++ (vinyl and labels)/VG++ (cover):
Vinyl is superbly bright and lustrous and has just a touch of sleeve inflicted wear - next to nothing.
Labels has less than a very few barely noticeable - short, simple, superficial - spindletraces. Labels has light residue from the inner sleeve... a little more to Side 1 than Side 2.
Vinyl itself is graded near mint, labels close to near mint/excellent - hence the overall excellent vinyl grading.
Cover has an almost perfect front centre - only a very faint degree of wear to laminate only along vinyl outline and a single short mid-opening wrinkles. Back centre has just a touch of age discolouration along seams but is otherwise wonderfully clean.
Cover has nice edges - a touch of light wrinkling from spine... a discontinued, thin stripe of laminate lift along spine. Cover has light wrinkling in spine corner areas from milder corner bends.
Cover has straight and intact seams except for a mild 2-3 cm mid-upper pressure point - spine has just a touch of pressure but is easily readable, with all text intact - all in all a series of mostly minor imperfections which has very little influence on the viewers experience of the cover - graded close to near perfect/excellent.
