The Beatles Let It Be – Apple L-3401
The box is clean and in excellent condition with all corners sturdy and unbroken. There are no seam splits or missing textured covering whatsoever. The hinge is complete and intact, both inside and out. The attached photos make the interior cardboard appear more age darkened than it actually is in hand.
The label is complete without any tears or missing paper and firmly attached. The colors are saturated and vibrant with dark black and sharp text. It is nearly impossible to find pristine copies as the all black covers are quite prone to wear. The front and back covers do show signs of wear as seen in the images, but the covers still display quite nicely. Especially being now 50 years old. The spine is undamaged and still bright with minimal age yellowing.
The clear plastic Ampex reel is original and in NM- condition with virtually no signs of wear. The paper label is glossy with sharp black logo and text. It is adhered to the reel with no edge lifts or missing paper. There is one bubble in the label presumably there since manufacturing which does not detract in the least.
The tape has not been play tested, as I have no reel to reel player. My condition assessment is strictly visual. However, the tape is clean with a glossy sheen and does not seem to be brittle or damaged. Overall the tape appears to be in excellent condition. Playing is NOT recommended, as any magnetic tape of this age may be brittle and prone to breakage. For this reason a refund cannot be offered. All tapes are offered exclusively for their collectability. It will come to you in a Japanese style clear polypropylene resealable sleeve.
The attached high resolution images show the tape and box from multiple angles for a complete visual condition assessment.
