Media Condition: Very Good (VG)
Sleeve Condition: Very Good (VG)

Record a nice solid to strong vg with marks and lines but still with original sheen. Labels are a really nice ex condition, just a touch of spindle wear but no writing and no other wear. Sleeve is a weak vg with small pieces missing from the top and bottom flipbacks but looks more presentable from the front. Comes with the original Emitex inner sleeve. Has been pro cleaned and fully played. Apart from run-in's playback is superb and way above grade (Rega Planar 3)
