Sleeve: VG+ (a dirty mark that cuts into the spine a little approx half way up on the front, some light marks/wear around top red line, and also some sticker remnants across the epic on bottom of the front. Dirty along opening edge, most likely that is wear laminate ends, light wear/damage to spine corners, type on the spine good apart from that mark on the front which goes into the R of Choral on the spine, back a green sticker top right again from the previous owner, a little dirt on the flip backs at the edge of the laminate, some light shelf wear otherwise excellent)
Has its original factory inner sleeve, some creasing around the shape of disc, and a bit yellowed on the opening edge side.
I have not cleaned either Record at all. It’s amazing they are in such fine condition at almost 60years old.
A high starting price, sorry, didn’t want to risk letting them go to cheap, have other early fine classical to put on so please watch out for my other items.
