CONDITION

Disc

Labels: NEAR MINT

A superb pair with the only trace of wear being two faint single spindle trails around the side 1 centre hole.

Visual: NEAR MINT

Immaculate factory-fresh playing surfaces which retain all of their deep-gloss shine and are unmarked in strong daylight. Closer examination beneath my powerful halogen desk lamp reveals just a few barely visible wispy paper hairlines from the inner-sleeve and a sparkling rainbow shine. This is your final upgrade of this masterpiece.

Sound Quality: NEAR MINT

This wonderful sounding copy plays cleanly and clearly and has certainly been barely played. All tracks play clean & clearly with all of the warmth and clarity you would expect of such an early copy. Our careful play-check detected only two soft pops during 'She's Leaving Home' but no groove/playwear distortion or crackle here or elsewhere on this exquisite example.

Cover: NEAR MINT

Much harder to find than their mono counterparts, this earliest 'wide-spine' example is in truly exceptional condition. The iconic front panel is clean & unworn and retains a totally unscratched high-gloss laminate, free from any 'thumbnail' wrinkles. There is a small bump to the lower left corner but all others are in fine shape. All opening edges are sharp and clean with just a couple of tiny 'pushes' to the edges of the rear pocket. Both panels inside the gatefold are flawless with no damage or wear to the upper flip-over edges. The rear panel is just as glossy with again, no 'thumbnails' or even ringwear and all corners from this angle are 100% in-shape and unworn. All seams are smooth, unstressed and unsplit with no flaking or worn laminate. The spine is clean, square & uncrushed along its entire length and retains its full lamination.

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT

Clean and white where is should be with some soft storage wrinkles to the corners. It is downgraded due to a number written in one of the upper corners and a 3cm lower seam split.

Cut-out sheet: MINT
