The vinyl has considerable marks. Visibly it looks poor. But I have played the album a few times and it plays much better than you would expect. There are some surface noise at times and a few crackles, but nowhere did it skip when I played it. It is well marked but there are no deep scratches. Records from this era were generally very durable.
The cover is in decent condition. The laminate is largely intact both back and front. Some light scuffing in places. There are also a few light creases and some small blebbing to the laminate in a couple of places along the edge nearest the spine, both front and back.
The spine is largely intact, with no real blemishes.
You can use the zoom feature on the pictures for a closer look.
It is certainly far from mint condition. The vinyl visibly, is quite poor but it definitely plays better than that. The cover is certainly much better than the vinyl to look at. Its a decent example of perhaps, rock music's rarest cover.
The very first edition of the debut album from Led Zeppelin.
Turquoise lettering and the silver strip along the bottom.
This version was withdrawn very quickly. But then you knew that!!
