CONDITION

The Vinyl
VERY NEAR MINT
On initial visual inspection the playing surface looks SUPERB, LOVELY, GLOSSY AND MIRROR LIKE SHINE I cannot only see ANY EVEN FEINT BLEMISHES OR HAIRLINES EVEN UNDER A STRONG LIGHT !!!
Any marks that could possibly be seen under a stronger light would be caused by the vinyl been slid in and out of its sleeve!
 Importantly There is definitely NO needle scratches or audio sounding marks that I heard at all  !!!!!
A STUNNING example of this RARE MONO FIRST EVER PRESS from AUGUST 1964. SUPERB !!!
IN MY OPINION IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO BETTER THIS VINYL UNLESS SEALED AND UNPLAYED, AMAZING AFTER OVER HALF A CENTURY !!!


The Audio Quality NEAR MINT
I have played this through track for track at very loud volume on a top REGA system,  the audio is awesome! 
Crystal clear and vibrant through out, with NO distortion or any signs of groove wear at all  !!!! 
Certainly NO clicks pops or jumps!!  As good as it gets in my opinion !! 
THIS AUDIO IS RATED AT THE VERY TOP ON ALL FREQUENCIES! 
GRADED AS NEAR MINT!! 
UNBELIEVABLE FOR A VINYL THAT IS 56 YEARS OLD !!!!! 


The Labels:  NEAR MINT
These are super ! Bright and clean ONLY ONE OR TWO SPINDLE LINES can be seen on each side, angled in strong light but concentrated around the centre hole only.
Confirming this has definitely been played VERY FEW TIMES since 1964 !!!!
Please note! i am highly critical about the audio quality on my records as it is my prime interest above rarity
This plays awesome you will not be disappointed.


The Outer Sleeve  Near Mint
This is the original Ernest J. Day Laminated TRI flip back Printed cover , in superb condition!!
Nice clean glossy appearance front and rear !!
NO RIPS OR NASTY NAMES WRITTEN ON ETC 
 RICH IN COLOUR  Super FULLY LEGIBLE spine 
Being ultra critical ,
VERY Slightest foxing on
rear but thats it, please see pics to confirm
again one of the best ive seen for a long time and always stored in NEW dust cover
and includes original NEMS dust bag from day of purchase in the summer of 1964  !!!


The original EMITEX Inner Sleeve Near MINT
This is the original correct EMITEX rice paper poly lined inner sleeve.
 NO splits or tears, just very light minimal creases, lovely !!!
NEMS ORIGINAL CLEAR DUST BAG, IS CREASED AND SHOWS ITS AGE, BUT NO SPLITS, FULLY LEGIBLE WORDING BUT WAS REPLACED MANY YEARS AGO WITH A MODERN VERSION BUT KEPT THIS VINYL PRISTINE IN THE EARLY YEARS. (See all pictures)
