Vinyls are still bright and shiny - has a touch of far from obtrusive sleeve wear - next to nothing. Labels has a single short and extremely superficial spindletrace in the imediate vicinity of the centre hole - vinyls are easily graded near mint.

Biographical booklet has a few spots on Side 2 & 3 and a single one opn Side 6 & 7 - otherwise barely any signs of handling.

Discography booklet has a touch of age spotting in the upper left front area but is otherwise extremely close to perfect.

Booklets has no writing or tears, no creasing or rips - both are conservatively graded close to near perfect/excellent.

Poster is mint and cover has only the faintest corners and edge wear - spine displays the usual thin stripe from the middle which is simply a sign that the cover has been opened.

Inner spread has a few light and unobtrusive age spots - all in all a series of very minor to minor flaws resulting in a close to near perfect/excellent cover grading.

OBI has a milder bends and a little age spotting on back - likewise graded close to near perfect - all in all incredible nice vinyl along with an overall very nice packaging.
