VINYL is VG++ glossy with light surface scuffs (no scratches). Plays great, only the standard, faint background static common to vinyl of this era, no pops nor skips from any wear! Only 1-2 faint spindle marks near the label-hole, proving this has been played only a few times. Deep groove, dark green and gold label #LP-4003 / U-10517. Very strict, adult Goldmine grading, see my feedback! A lesser copy just sold for $660, this is a fair price for the rare condition. I will not ship this Media rate, it is too fragile, priority only in USA. Express only for international orders.
COVER is VG++ great shape for age. With clean edges and spine: only a 1" split on bottom edge at the mouth corner and some light edge rubbing. The reverse side shows a "D.J. copies" stamp.
Thanks for looking! $4 Flat Rate for any amount shipped in USA.

Vinyl Grading (Goldmine w/ added NM- and VG++, for the "in between" gradings :)
Mint [M], or Still Sealed [SS]: Only sealed records will be deemed "Mint".
Near Mint [NM]: The record shows no obvious sign of wear, appearing unplayed. An LP jacket has no creases, folds, seam splits or any other noticeable similar defect. No cut-out holes, either. Basically, Near Mint looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap.
*Near Mint Minus [NM-], and [VG++]: Same as above, yet shows only faint paper scuffs on the surface only. No noise from scuffs will be heard. VG++ is for an LP with only a medium amount of paper scuffs, still no effect on play.
Very Good Plus [VG+]: Shows some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some slight signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK yet will be noted. An LP jacket my have slight signs of wear also and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken out of print and sold at a discount. In general, if not for a couple of minor things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint. All but the most mint-crazy collectors will find a Very Good Plus record highly acceptable.
Very Good [VG]: Many of the defects found in a VG+ record are more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise is evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during the song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as will light scratches deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time, only two or three of them.
Good [G], Good Plus [G+]: My lowest level, I do not list below this level unless exceptionally rare: A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear. A jacket or sleeve has seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object.
Poor [P], Fair [F]: I do not list records in this catergory with skips, cracks and/or noise that prevents the enjoyment of the music.
