Interior labels are clean and LP retains a nice gloss. Jacket
is VG, with seam splits. Before I get into the description of the jacket, please note that this is a "Bottom Loader" jacket. In other words, the lip where the LP is inserted into the jacket is beneath the picture on the front of the jacket, although the text on the back of the jacket reads right side up. All splits are going to be relative to the lip of the jacket (with the picture and text turned to the left 90 degrees). First split starts at the front top right corner. This travels toward the spine about 5 1/2 inches. There is a split in the center of the spine about 3 1/2 inches long. There are a couple of splits along the bottom seam, each no longer than an inch. All corners show corner wear. All seams show wear. The back has a couple of small spots of discoloration and a blue ink stamp in the top left corner, but over all very clean. There is some light scuffing on the bottom of the back of the jacket (see pictures). Jacket retains a nice gloss and the colors remain bright. This is a solid addition to any jazz collection!
