Vinyl is bright and shiny - has been used directly from the paper inner sleeve and has subsequently just a little faint, thin and very superficial sleeve inflicted wear. Labels are without signs of handling or play and vinyl is overall graded near mint.
Inner sleeve has only very light and marginal signs of handling - graded near mint.
Cover a touch of wrinkling from edges, a little very superficial creasing and a very thin stripe of sun bleaching along spine.
Seams are without wear and straight, spine easily readable and without pressure - opening edges without rubbing. Corners have only very marginal dent or rubbing - overall a simply extremely nice cover which conservatively is graded close to near mint/excellent.
