Item Description



Greatest Hits III (Limited Edition No 024)
This unplayed limited edition first pressing is in superb condition and has the mega low number of 024. It is so rare to find one below 1000 let alone below 50! It is the lowest I have ever seen and all the more rare when you consider the first 100 or so would often go to record company employees.
Now highly collectable Greatest Hits III was released in 1999as a double vinyl LP. This particular edition has never been played prior to my play grading.
As this is the limited edition it includes the pvc sleeve and hasthe Queen name and crest embossed on the front withBrian, Roger and John included also.

Visual grading
They are both visually stunning and is pristine condition. The previous owner confirmed they had never been played and I have no reason to doubt him and indeed they have that immaculate glossy sheen of brand new vinyl. There is obviously no spindle wear, hairlines or scratches at all and quite simply they look as new.
Play grading
I played a number of tracks fromboth vinyls and I can confirm they play with stunning depth and clarity. There is no static let alone any crackle or worse. The quality is immaculate and both 'Barcelona' and 'Too Much Love Will Kill You' on S1 are superb examples of this. There is no interference of any kind and this applies to all tracks on all four sides, they play as new which is incredibly rare to find today.The louder tracks have no distortion and the quieter tracks play with a clarity and definition that is second to none. Again 'No-One But You' and 'These Are The Days If Our Lives' on S4 play with stunning precision. Audio does not get better than this! There is also complete silence between every track. I very rarely grade as Mint on an unsealed LP but the quality of the audio here deserves that accolade.
Cover
The limited edition cover is in Mint-condition, such a rarity for this LP. There are a couple of very minor, barely noticeable creases around the edges and is very nearly 'as new' such is the beautiful quality and is without doubt one of the best I have ever seen.As can be seen the mega low limited edition number of 00024 is printed on the reverse side. Just to repeat I have never every seen one with a number as low as this!!
PVC plastic sleeve
This is inperfect condition. So often they have splits but not this one! Never seen better.
Picture sleeves
They are both in near immaculatecondition with no splits or tears at all. Rarely have I seen better.
Labels
They are in sublime condition with no spindle wear or writing/marking anywhere.
