Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a couple of thin, inaudible hairlines along with a few spots of greyish appearance - looks like pressure marks - completely inaudible.
Side 1 label has a single or two tiny spindletraces in the immediate surrounding of centerhole - Side 2 in the area of a handful - slightly scattered with the centerring.
Vinyl is overall graded close to excellent - almost near mint.
Cover has very nice front and back cover centers with only very light wrinkling from edges, a little top front pressure mark and a very light degree of creasing or wear - only affecting the shine - not actually penetrating the cover. Cover has light and small wrinkles from edges.
Seams are firm with only ca 1 cm wear towards lower opening and a slight mid-top dent. Cover has a touch of laminate lift along back spine.
Spine is perfectly readable, opening edges has only light rubbing - corners are un-dented, but very slightly rubbed - overall a simply way above average cover without any real disturbance to the viewing of the artwork - graded close to near mint/excellent.
