"Three Prong Music. All Selections BMI""MGM RECORDS - A DIVISION OF METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER, INC. - Made in U.S.A."Notes: 1.25" pressing ring diameter, block-looking 'S' engraved in the deadwax and the label fonts indicate a pressing by MGM Record Manufacturing Division, Bloomfield, New Jersey.Album: VG+/ Excellent- Looks nearly unplayed except for a few minor surface scratches. Considering what this is, it's more than likely one of the best ever available in the open market.
Cover: VGTop (stem) of banana sticker is missing. Rest of sticker is intact and unpeeled. Cover is almost entirely intact except for a 2 3/4" split on the top right corner on side where album is inserted. Very minor corner and edge wear. Interior of gate fold is excellent. Original Verve inner sleeve is excellent. If it weren't for the missing piece of banana sticker and the slight discolorations/ tiny marks on the exterior, I'd grade the packaging VG+.
Album will be shipped in generic white paper sleeve.
Shipping is essentially free but it shows a flat fee of $10.00 to cover insurance. I would not want to ship something like this through the mail without insuring it.
