The jacket is completely intact, with NO SEAM SPLITS! There is some shelf wear, primarily with respect to the seams, spine and corners - see the pictures associated with this listing for more detail. 
The jacket has NO drill holes or saw marks of any kind - see pictures with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in NEAR MINT minus condition!
The LP retains most of the original gloss and sheen!
The record has no serious marks - there are some light spider marks which are caused by sliding the LP in and out of the inner sleeve. These types of marks usually do not sound on most audio equipment, but this is dependent on the sensitivity of your turntable, arm and cartridge - lovely condition overall though!
There are NO significant spindle marks on the record labels that we could see!
This is the copy you have always wanted in your collection - any picky audiophile should be happy with this one! A better copy would be very difficult to locate!

Please understand that this is a vintage record LP - as such, one cannot expect the vinyl to sound like a brand new, audiophile pressing! Some noise is inevitable - for best results, always properly clean your LPs before playing them.

The LP is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

A Short Note About LP GRADING -
Mint {M} = Only used for sealed items.
Near Mint {NM} = Virtually flawless in every way.
Near Mint Minus {NM-} = Item has some minor imperfections, some audible.
Excellent {EXC} = Item obviously played and enjoyed with some noise.
Very Good Plus {VG+} = Many more imperfections which are noticeable and obtrusive.

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
