Details of this offering are:
This is the Spizer .05 variation of this label; oval VeeJay logo on both sides, with "Beatles" spelled with one "T" (i.e. BeaTles) on both sides. I HAVE TWO OTHER 498 LABEL VARIATIONS ALSO UP FOR AUCTION - and "please. please..." have a look, and consider those too!
VINYL: VG to VG+ & VG+ (side a) One 1" scratch which I canNOT fee (no play noise from it), and a rub-blemish near the beginning - again, no extra noise from it - otherwise only a few very light/superficial scratches (none of which can be finger-felt); nice shine; plays all the way through with no scratches and only a bit of surface/back-ground noise; in my opinion, due to play and considering the appearance, VG+ if not for both the scratch and that blemish. (side b) Except for two 1/2" scratches - neither of which can be felt - only a few very light/superficial scratches; nice shine; plays with only a bit of background noise; if not for those scratches, this side would grade a good VG+. Stamped logos are in the run-off matrix - both sides. My grading is neither conservative, nor liberal; tho grading is subjective, I try to be "by the book" as the book is written!
LABELS: VG to VG+ (side a), and VG to VG+ (side b) ..... no writing; light to moderate ring wear side a, and light ring wear side b w/ a bit more wear on the label.
SLEEVE: std white sleeve
