In the 1960ies and start 1970ies it was customary to market vinyl and labels pressed in Denmark in German, UK or US covers.

Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is wonderfully lustrous - has almost no signs of play or handling - hardly any sleeve inflicted marks.
Side 1 labels is mint - Side 2 label has two short, simple and, light and superficial spindletraces - obviously an album just tried on a couple of times and then stored. Vinyl and labels are overall graded near mint.

Cover has a little light wrinkling from or along edges - otherwise mint cover centres. Perfect inner spread.
Cover has a very few points of edge wear - next to nothing - slightly pressurized, but easily readable spine - a little opening edge and corners rubbing - overall simply just very nice - graded close to near mint/excellent.
