Could be graded as MINT ! The sound quality is fantastic and impressive.
NO clicks ; NO skips ; NO tics.
Just few very rare/extremely slight surface noises (barely audible).
Stunning condition !
Visual : EXC+ (VG++)
Very close to NM ! The vinyl is visually beautiful.
Would be absolutely in NM condition without 3 small surface marks on Track 1 (Side 2). Only one of them is barely feelable. These surface marks have NO impact on the Audio quality.
Superb condition !
Label : very clean !
Each side is beautiful with j ust a couple of slight spindle marks (visible under light).
