Condition: VG++ (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - hardly any signs of play or handling - extreme close to mint? this is one of those that most would grade straight mint.
Labels are plain mint - vinyl is overall graded close to mint.
Booklet has only faint signs of handling - graded close to mint.
Cover has top corner dents but is otherwise in extraordinary condition - no signs of handling or storage? just a very minor spine corner and a more pronounced opening corner dent... superb - graded close to near mint/excellent overall.
