Item Description

Welcome to my auctions....The time has come to sell my huge record collection over the next weeks/ check out my other vinyl listed, more added each week.
I am a private collector, selling my collection, I am not a dealer. Due to poor hearing, The record is sold as visually inspected so please base your bidding solely on this not what it might sound/play like. Even the most visually stunning record can have background noise, if you want perfect audio then please find another copy with audio gradings.
Pink Floyd - Animals - Earliest 1st UK Pressing - Heavy Weight Vinyl - Wide Spine + Only One side open sleeve (back sleeve opens, front is factory sealed but not with a flap) - Earliest Matrix Ending - Mothers at 9oClock but NO Stampers at 3oClock VERY RARE - Really Stunning condition throughout Complete with Original Thick Card Inner
SHVL 815
SHVL 815 A - 2U  2 (no stampers!!!)
SHVL 815 B - 3U  2 (no stampers!!!)
Both sides have NO Deep Marks and NO deep scratches, There are 3 extremely light and faint, non feelable hairline/scratches on each side, The rest of the vinyl is mark free, glossy and clean with at most the lightest of sleeve removal signs under strong light, It has a great shine and with it being the earliest THICK vinyl looks amazing
Labels are clean and free from damage and wear with some signs of spiders legs in strong light...see photos
Original 1st press Stiff Card Gatefold Sleeve is in Stunning condition, No ringwear or rubbing, front and back are flat, clean and still shiny. Very minor corner wear (bottom right) and very slight handling wear to opening edge. Spine is crisp and solid and fully readable. There is no fading of the colours anywhere!! There is a crease from spine edge on front and back, there is a small crease and a little wear on back bottom left. Inside is near Perfect, They really don't turn up in this condition very often. It's not perfect but its a great example...see photos
Original Thick Card Round edge inner sleeve has some  light edge wear and some very tiny crease lines at the bottom, flat and clean with very slight rignwear.
A great example of this rare Earliest A-2U Heavy weight Press.
I will describe any flaws such as wear to sleeves, scuffs, marks or scratches to vinyl and describe them honestly, if you expect a better condition than I have listed then you need to learn to read. I will grade based on visual inspection under artificial light. PLEASE remember this is Vinyl...even brand new vinyl can have clicks and pops...that's part of its charm...if you want perfect audio without background about CD's or MP3's? Due to my poor hearing, The record is sold as visually inspected so please base your bidding solely on this, in the event that a record may not play well or have background noise no refund will be given because I have no way of verifying and as such, if you place a bid you are acknowledging this.
With that said....many rarities will be listed, some fair condition some near mint.
Any questions...please ask.
Premium quality record mailers will be used with 2 sheets of additional cardboard.
