Vinyl has a superb lustre - hardly any signs of play or handling... just a touch of sleeve inflicted wear - mint labels.
Side 2 label is perfect - Side 1 label very slightly displaced? a mm or so - causing light rubbing to the displaced part of the label in the immediate vicinity of the center hole - graded near mint overall.
Cover is very nice as well - hardly any wear or smudging along vinyl outline - a couple of mm's spine shelling outside printed area? otherwise very nice and intact seams.
Corners have mild denying and very gentle rubbing - cover is overall graded close to near mint/excellent.
