Vinyl has the generic black rainbow rim labels with top oval company logo, silver center printing and light blue printing along lower label perimeter - placing this as the original 1st issue.
Vinyl has handwritten matrix information:
Side 1: ST-1-2868-A1 AIM (placed in a triangle)
Side 2: ST-2-2868-B2 AIM (placed in a triangle)
Vinyl is housed in a plain white paper inner sleeve - ultimately in a front pasted picture cover
Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+ (Cover)
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a little far from audible sleeve inflicted wear - perfect labels - overall graded close to near mint.
Cover has a touch of wear along lower vinyl outline - otherwise just faint wear to the front and a couple of age spots to the back along with light age discolouration along spine.
Seams are tight and almost without wear, spine is easily readable, lower seam has a slight mid-dent, top seam is perfect, opening edges without rubbing.
Corners are nice - extremely marginal denting or rubbing - next to nothing - and otherwise nice? a simply extremely nice upper VG+ cover.
