Matrix info suggest mastering by The CP label information suggest that this copy was manufactured by Columbias Pressing Plant in Pitman, New Jersey... these would normally have a matrix identifier such as 'Pit', 'CPFR', 'P' or 'CP' - either machine stamped or hand etched.
The CSM matrix print on this copy suggests the Columbia Records Pressing Plant, in Santa Maria, Ca... our best guess is that this one stems from a Santa Maria batch manufactured with Pitman labels. Either that or this one was fabricated by the Pitman plant from an acetate supplied by the Santa Monica plant.
Vinyl comes complete with illustrated lyric insert - picture cover.

Vinyl is overall graded near mint.
Insert is likewise nice - cover still in its original - opened - shrink wrapping? has a little wear against lower corners, but is otherwise in superb condition - also graded near mint.
