A clean, unworn set bearing just a handful of light spindle trails around the side 2 centre hole only.
Visual/Audio: EXCELLENT +
Clean and glossy playing surfaces which show some faint wispy paper-type hairlines beneath halogen light and a few faint inner-sleeve storage marks beneath on side 2 beneath halogen light. There are no scratches or any other significant or major visual blemishes anywhere. The disc has been little played and sounds clean & unworn throughout, with just a touch of low-level vinyl background between tracks. There are no clicks, pops or any other such distractions.
Cover: VERY GOOD +
Strong and clean with light to moderate handling and storagewear. The front panel has some storage rubbing and a small area of laminate lift above Paul's head, along with a few small edge & 'thumbnail' wrinkles. There is some bruising to the corners tips but no damage to either opening edge. The rear panel is clean & free from any writing or missing paper and both seams and the spine are undamaged.
