The sleeve is strictly graded Very Good – due to having a matte finish & not being laminated, thereis some age wear evident including a degree of foxing but this is mostly around the edges & on the inside. All print is clearly legible & there is no writing. The insert shows some creases & the odd spot of foxing not affecting the print & completes the package nicely. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned & play tested & grades VG+ but plays to an Excellent standard. Both sides of the vinyl have a deep sheen & there is a degree of spindle marks around the centre hole to show repeat play, with no jumps or sticks & no scratches.
