Matrix numbers: XEX 503-3N & XEX 504-3N
Stamper codes: 2,5/GDT & 1/GPG
Vinyl weight: 162g
Housed in an outer laminated, UK-printed mono cover, complete with original rice-paper lined inner-sleeve.
Labels: NEAR MINT
A sparkling set bearing no more than 2/3 faint spindle trails around each unworn centre hole.
Visual: NEAR MINT
Both playing surfaces retain their deep-gloss factory shine and are 'as new' and unmarked in strong daylight. Closer examination beneath halogen light reveals just a few harmless wispy paper hairlines from the few times the disc has been removed from its inner. Tough to upgrade this gem.
Sound Quality: NEAR MINT
This great sounding disc has clearly been played just a couple of times and the sound quality is clean & totally unworn throughout. Our play check detected just four soft 'pops' on 'Mr Moonlight' from a small spot in the grooves, but apart from that and a touch of low-level vinyl background between tracks, it is without fault.
Cover: NEAR MINT
Finding this cover in this condition is extremely difficult and this example must be one of the best around.
The delicate front leaf is perfectly clean and has suffered no loss of its factory shine. The only blemishes are a faint line to the left of George's face and a tiny bruise to the upper right corner. There are no 'thumbnails' and all of the leading edges are razor sharp & unworn.
Inside, both panels are clean and white where they should be with no yellowing, writing or missing paper. The delicate hinge is fully intact with no damage or wear to either end.
The rear panel is as clean & glossy as the front with a small indentation on George's face but no ringwear or laminate lift.
The spine is clean, square and uncrushed with undamaged factory pinched ends.
All seams are smooth and unstressed with no flaking or missing laminate.
Inner-sleeve: NEAR MINT
