Vinyl is gorgeous - bright and shiny and with just a Little sleeve inflicted wear - plain close to mint.
Labels does almost not suggest any play - a faint degree of spindletraces only - graded near mint.
Vinyl is overall graded near mint.
Inner sleeve has light inevitable vinyl outline - a bend top corner and a little notch to the lower seam. Inner sleeve is graded close to near mint/excellent.
Cover has a very few thin, small and light wrinkles from spine - from mild bends. A tiny mid-top front spot of laminate lift towards spine and a larger one in the lower opening corner.
Inner spread is mint.
Seams are straight and without splits, pressure points, shelling or other imperfections, spine has a touch of top pressure, opening edges are without rubbing but has a couple of dents which seems marginal but one has inflicted a 4 ? 5 mm rip from lower mid-back opening. Corners ar extremely nice - does not show any signs of handling what so ever - mint and pointy. All in all a simply extremely nice cover - graded at least close to near mint/excellent - overall a simply way above average and superb .
Vinyl plays amazing - without any noise and with fine volume, fidelity and dynamics - a play grading would be mint.
