This is what looks to be a factory sealed copy. There are no other pressing of this 1960 release aside from a modern reissue on a different label, so this must be original. It has a factory hole punch right through. I assume because of that puncture moisture and debris must have been able to get inside the shrink which has caused some mold or mildew to form. Please look at these photos carefully. It looks like upon opening, the jacket could be cleaned fairly easily and it should look like new. Aside from that I cannot guarantee the condition of this copy considering I cannot open it. I assume it's great.Please see pics. I have done my best to include any examples of blemishes and markings on the vinyl.
We do our best to describe and photograph each item in detail. We try not to rely on any specific grading system, such as Goldmine, for using those simplistic grades may not capture the true essence of the item, and are also subject to interpretation by the seller or buyer. Possibly increasing expectations.
