suggesting that this copy was pressed at RCA Records Pressing Plant, Washington, UK, manufactured from the first set of master matrices, the first fathers and mothers and a very early stamper for Side 1, the 1st stamper for Side 2.
Vinyl is housed in a the original jet-black polylined inner sleeve - ultimately in a textured gatefold picture cover.
Condition: VG+ (Vinyl and labels)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a couple of light and far from audible surface lines paired with a light degree of sleeve inflicted wear.
Labels have a very light degree of spindletraces - almost flawless. Vinyl is overall a very nice VG+.
Picture cover has light wear along top and bottom front edges - along back vinyl outline... inner spread is mint.
Cover has a little seam-wear towards top corner, more continously so along bottom seam - spine is without wear but sun-bleached - opening edges has hardly any signs of handling.
Bottom corners are slightly rubbed - lower opening corner has a light dent - top corners have a very light degree of rubbing - cover is a very nice VG+... especially when you consider the fragile nature of the cover.
This is overall simply a very nice copy - way above average, but not perfect.
