Record was found in a suitcase in a basement in Chicago.  It was near other musty, dirty old records without a sleeve.  I only used a wet terry cloth to wipe surface dirt / dust off--no other cleaning was performed.  There is wear on the record, but surprisingly, no chips or cracks found.  There are a few feelable scratches, but not many or anything extremely deep.  There are a ton of scuffs and all over wear.  Not really any sheen left.  There is a pretty deep warp as well, but as you can see in the vids below, it plays without a skip on both sides. The labels are mostly all legible--have good color.  They show wear and spindle marks. 

I only have one of those old Califone record players that plays at 78 rpm, so just gave it a little test for this video to check the severity of the warp.  You will hear plenty of noise.  I am sure with a good cleaning and and a better 78 player, it will sound better of course--but to be clear--it is not a pristine copy.  Both sides play without skipping and without noticeable repeating pops - just a consistent noise floor.  

Please watch both videos and see pics before bidding / making an offer.
