  • CONDITION IN DETAIL:
  • THE OUTER ENVELOPE SLEEVE IS IN REALLY NICE CONDITION, WITH ACCEPTABLE FAULTS: SOME OF THE FRAGILE CARDBOARD EDGING SHOWS SOME WHITE WEAR; ALL OF THE CORNERS SHOW SOME WHITE WEAR. THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF SPLITTING AT THE CORNERS WHERE THE WEIGHT OF THE INNER ARTIST FOLDERS HAVE PROVED TOO GREAT. THE FLAPS TO THE REAR ARE COMPLETELY INTACT AND REMAIN IN ONE PIECE WITHOUT SECTIONS MISSING. THERE IS A LITTLE WHITE WEAR AND A TINY BIT OF SPLITTING TO THE OVERLAPPING FLAPS BUT NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. THERE IS A LIGHT DIAGONAL CREASE TO THE LEFT-HAND SIDE FLAP. THERE ARE A FEW LIGHT HANDING CREASES AND THUMB DENTS FRONT AND BACK BUT NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. OVERALL, THE SLEEVE IS IN REALLY NICE CONDITION FOR SUCH A FRAGILE ITEM, AND ONE OF THE BETTER EXAMPLES I HAVE SEEN. BOTH FRONT AND BACK ARE NICELY CLEAN. THERE IS NO WRITING. THERE ARE NO TEARS. IF ANY, ALL FAULTS ARE MINOR, ACCEPTABLE, AND NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT TO MUCH.
  • THE SPINES ARE IN PRETTY NICE CONDITION WITH SOME CENTRAL WHITE WEAR AND CREASING, BUT REMAIN PRETTY SQUARE, FIRM, AND TRUE. ALL OF THE TEXT IS READABLE AND INTACT. IF ANY, ALL FAULTS ARE MINOR, ACCEPTABLE, AND NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT TOO MUCH.
  • THE FOLDERS ARE IN LOVELY SHAPE: ALL FOUR COLOURS ARE VIBRANT AND TRUE; ALL TRANSPARENT PLASTIC POCKETS ARE ATTACHED ARE STRONG WITHOUT TEARS OR CRACKS; ALL FOUR COLOURED PIECES OF BACKING CARDBOARD WITHIN THE PLASTIC POCKETS TO SECURE THE RECORDS ARE IN PLACE - THESE ARE VERY RARE AND USUALLY MISSING. ALL FOUR CARDBOARD FOLDERS ARE CRISP, CLEAN AND STRONG WITHOUT TEARS OR MAJOR DEFECTS. THERE IS A LITTLE RING WEAR TO THE REAR OF EACH FOLDER, BUT NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. THERE IS NO WRITING. THERE ARE NO TEARS. IF ANY, ALL FAULTS ARE MINOR, ACCEPTABLE, AND NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
  • THE DISCS ARE ALL UNPLAYED AND HAD NOT BEEN REMOVED FROM THE PLASTIC POCKETS UNTIL THIS GRADING. HOWEVER, AS IS USUAL WITH THIS ITEM, ALL RECORDS HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY BEING HOUSED TIGHTLY FOR FIFTY YEARS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO PLASTIC, AND SHOW SURFACE AND CLOUDING AND SURFACE SWEAT MARKS. THERE ARE NO VISIBLE SCRATCHES. ALL RECORDS ARE THE ORIGINAL FIRST PRESS RELEASES THAT WERE PLACED IN THE PROMO PACK. ALL FAULTS ARE MINOR, ACCEPTABLE, AND NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
  • ALL IN ALL, A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A VERY RARE ITEM AT A VERY NICE PRICE! THIS ONE IS FOR THE COLLECTION, WITH A LITTLE ROOM AND REASON TO UPGRADE, BUT NOT WITH ANY URGENY OR NECESSITY. STRICTLY GRADED USING RECORD COLLECTOR'S GRADING SYSTEM. BID WITH COMPLETE CONFIDENCE AS TOTAL SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED.
