Side 2: ARL-7298-1A, mother/stamper 1BB, KT taxcode
stressing that this copy was manufactured by the first master laquer, the first metal mothers and very early stampers. The KT code was used up to November 22nd 1968.
Vinyl is housed in a pinched spine MacNeil Press manufactured picture cover - 'Clarifoil' laminated on front, upper and lower extension flips and over the spine.
Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover ):
Vinyl is deliciously shiny and has a little faint sleeve wear - far from needle induced, far from audible. Labels has a light degree of spindle wear - a little less of Side 2 than Side 1 - labels are otherwise flawless and graded near perfect and vinyl is overall graded close to near perfect/excellent.
Front cover has a few light laminate edge-wrinkles, a single short one along opening and a more significant one in the lower left corner area. Front is otherwise remarkable clean with only a tiny upper right age spot. Back cover is astonishing - again a little edge wrinkling and just a touch of extension flips rubbing - and an upper superficial crease.
Seams are intact, spine clearly readable and barely pressurized - corners has a touch of wear - really next to nothing - graded close to near perfect/excellent - a very nice copy.
