A pristine pair showing NO spindle marks around either centre hole.

Visual: MINT

Immaculate factory-fresh playing surfaces which are totally unmarked and 'as new' both in strong daylight AND directly beneath halogen light. You will not find a cleaner looking disc.

Audio: MINT

This disc shows absolutely no signs of ever having been played - and sounds like it. All tracks play perfectly with no trace of any groove/play wear, crackle or indeed any audible issues whatsoever. A remarkable survivor.


Such a difficult cover to find in anything approaching this shape, but this example has survived the past 57 years in incredible shape. The front panel is clean & glossy with minimal storage marking with no 'thumbnail' wrinkles or heavy spine or edge bends. There is slight bruising to the upper right corner but all others, including the most vulnerable lower right corner are in great shape, as are both opening edges. The rear panel is clean & white with just a couple of very faint age spots and touch of discolouration to the flipback corners. All of the delicate flipbacks are in-place and undamaged and both seams and the spine are in perfect condition. Not many left like this. 

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT +

Clean & uncreased with three small repairs to one side of the central window but no seams splits, or writing.
