Suggesting that this copy was mastered February 1968 ? manufactured for Polydor from the first set of master matrices - the first set of fathers, the 7th and 8th stamper for Side 1 and 2 respectively? a first pressing.
Vinyl is held in a polylined inner sleeve with '3.69' corner print - ultimately in a fully laminated picture cover.
Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyl and Labels)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyl is superbly shiny - Side 1 has almost no sleeve wear, Side 2 a single very superficial line coupled with a touch of sleeve inflicted wear - mixture of clean near mint and a very conservative close to near perfect/excellent grading.
Labels has a single hardly visible, simple and superficial spindletrace - extremely close to mint - obviously not an album listened to more than a single or a couple time - visually graded close to near perfect/excellentoverall.
Picture cover is gorgeous - a couple of faint wrinkles from edges - a thin stribe of laminate lift along front cover - otherwise mint... hard to figure out how the laminate went through the last almost 50 years this unharmed.
