Condition : VG++ (Vinyl and Labels/ VG+(+) (Cover):

Vinyl is wonderful - bright and shiny - hardly any signs of handling - easily a near mint grading.
Labels have likewise hardly any signs of play or handling - likewise easily near mint.

Cover is nice - no wear to front and back cover centers what so ever - laminate remains crisp and clean except for the small and light laminate wrinkles from front edges... longer on back cover.
Inner spread has a little rubbing off from the opposite panel but is otherwise nice.
Seams are intact - spine easily readable and not worn - wrinkles across the spine though. Opening edges has a very slight front panel dent but almost no rubbing - all in all a simply very nice cover - graded close to near mint/excellent.
