suggest that this one is manufacture/pressed by Sonopress pressing facility in Gütersloht in - then - West Germany,
The early matrix endings and the manifestation of the Direct (Metal) Mastering process in the matrix print suggest that this is early on in the 2nd pressing process.

Vinyl is housed in a glossy and non-barcoded picture cover which has a large white front cover border.

Condition: VG+(+) (Vinyl and Labels)/VG+(+) (Cover):
Vinyl is bright and shiny - has a little sleeve inflicted only wear, but by far nothing inflicted by a needle.
Label have 2 - 3 short, simple and superficial spindletraces - indicating little play.

Vinyl and labels suggests that this copy was used a very few times directly from the paper inner sleeve supplied by the manufacturor... which as usual leaves light sleeve wear.

Labels are near mint - vinyl overall at least close to near mint.

Cover is nice - has a touch of edge wrinkling... a little pressure along spine and a slightly rubbed and dented lower opening corner... also a tiny staing just to the left of the front picture.
This is a very nice cover though - only marginal imperection affecting the viewing of the cover little - grade close to near mint as well.
