The sleeve has been kept in a clear protective sleeve from new. It does have some light ringwear, as does probably every other copy due to the sleeve being made with very soft card/paper. The ring wear has a little black rubbing caused by the protective sleeve.Apart from that it is in great shape, 1 minor corner bump, no rips or splits. The record is in stunning condition, only had 1 play ever.
No marks at all on the vinyl. Side 1 label has no spindle trails at all. Side 2 has a couple of trails from the same play. I only grade Mint if still sealed but this is as close as it gets. I doubt if there is a better copy out there.
Matrix: (Etched) Side 1: PSS-153-LP-A1 E. We package our records in the best available mailers with two cardboard protective stiffeners, great care is taken with all packaging to ensure that your record arrives in the best possible condition. Are classed as 1 item, please await invoice. Offer only applies to listings displaying items with the free p&p logo. All records are visually graded only under a strong light unless otherwise stated.Mint (M) Absolutely perfect in every way. We only give this grade if it is still sealed and no damage to the sleeve. Near Mint (NM) A nearly perfect record. The record should show no obvious signs of wear.
The cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits or other noticeable similar defects. And of course, the same will be true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves and the like. Basically, an LP in near mint condition looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap. Excellent (EX) An excellent record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences.
Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discolouration, but it should be barely noticeable. The center hole will not have been misshapen by repeated play.Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves will have some slight wear, lightly turned up corners, or a slight seam split. Very Good (VG) Many of the defects found in a EX record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with 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. The item "Tickawinda Rosemary Lane Vinyl LP UK 1st Signed Private Press Rare 1 Play NM" is in sale since Thursday, January 4, 2018.
