Vinyl is housed in an outer laminated Ernest J. Day & Co. manufactured gatefold picture cover.
Condition: VG+ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is looks nice - not the best of carbon dyings, and used durectly from the paper inner sleeve and the interaction between this and the vinyl has some some far from audible and superlight sleeve lines... a couple of drop marks as well of which one incflicts a very few light and barely noticeable clicks in Side 1, track 5.
Labels has some degree of light and slightly scattered spindlewear - looks like a 2 - 3 handfuls on Side 1 and a couple of handfuls on Side 2 - not easy to determine. Labels does not display any wear to centerhole itself and labels are graded near mint.
Vinyl is overall graded straight VG+.
Cover is very nice - a few light and small lamination wrinkles from edges - very little wear to laminate itself - no wear to top seams or slightly pressurized spine - lower front panel is extremely nice - back panel has continous wear along lower half seam against opening - far from a split.
Top spine corner has a little rubbing - the rest very little - overall neat looking and way above average with no major distractions from viewing the artwork - graded close to near mint/excellent.
