This is an original mono LP: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO (Verve / V-5008).
Record is very glossy with a few light marks that cannot be felt - one very small mark at the beginning of track 2 side 2 can be felt and creates appx. 10 repeated clicks - otherwise plays great with only a light background crackle at times that does not overpower or distract from music.
Gatefold cover looks great with some wear but no writing - INTACT BANANA! (see scans) - HYPE STICKER on back cover - bottom seam split appx. 1/2 length - top seam split appx. 1 inch at opening.
Original printed Verve inner sleeve - excellent condition. Will also ship in a new white inner sleeve.
