PINK FLOYD: Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, UK Columbia SCX 6157 1967 1st pressing with the extremely rare 1st issue cover, the cover without 'File Under Pop' in upper right corner on back-flap. -1, -1 matrixes. 1 R, 1 A mothers/stampers, which makes this among the first 800-1200 copies ever pressed of this psychedelic classic! The labels are of course the correct 1st issue labels, which notably has 'Interstellar Overdrive' + credits in one line on side 2 label.
The 1st stereo version with the 1st stereo cover is THE RAREST UK original version of this LP, with MONO 1st pressings being at least twice as common. (MONO still ruled the UK in 1967. Stereo became the preferred format for buyers sometime in 1968).
This is a stunning copy!! VINYL is 'as new' MINT(-), played once or twice, still retaining absolutely 'as new' surface and playing with perfect sound! Each label has just one or two faint spindle-traces per side. These may even have been made at the factory! So I would call this 'virtually unplayed', but I believe it's possible the former owner may have played in once, or more unlikely, maybe twice. Absolutely perfect vinyl! Surfaces looks 'as new'. Impossible to find any better!
COVER is EXCELLENT++, the best 1st issue STEREO cover I have ever seen, has a couple of barely visible half-moon laminate creases, as well as a tiny amount of wear in upper right corner. Absolutely minor and just a superb cover overall!
Good luck bidding & happy holidays to all my good customers....

Special UK-made extra-stiff-mailers designed for multiple LPs are used, even for single LP packages. The boxes are oversized and thus provide extra corner protection as well as great stiffness to the package. Addtional protection may also be used when found nessesary, such as stiffeners, bubble-wrap, extra corner-protection. I do not charge anything for packing materials.
MINT(-) is as close to new as a used LP or cover can get, unplayed or played 1-2 times at most with no visual signs of use on surfaces.
MINT- is superb, almost like new. No marks, scratches, clicks, noise, or anything else, aside from possibly a barely visible and inaudible hairline or two. All minor blemishes will be mentioned in the individual descriptions.
EX or EXCELLENT is also VERY nice, 2-3 light inaudible marks/hairlines perhaps, no disturbing noise, great sound quality.
VG+ is nice with light hairlines, a few marks maybe. Please see individual notes in case of VG+ or lower gradings.
VG... Well used but still very enjoyable. See individual notes on the item in question.
