Includes all the original albums, inserts, pics etc. Everything included looks to be unused, very clean for being 39 years old. This is the perfect gift for any true Beatles fan! This is the original box set imported from the United Kingdom and released in 1978.All the albums are in perfect condition!!! Jackets---(NM) Near Mint condition, Most are actually in Mint condition but a few of the covers have some small imperfections. Inserts/Pics/Poster---(NM) Near Mint condition! Box---(NM) Near Mint condition. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS FOR DETAILS. I use the Goldmine Grading Scale with a couple of extra grades.
There are simply too many records that fall in between the normal goldmine scale. I do this to ensure a clear and accurate account of each albums condition. The Scale Is As Follows. Looks as if it just came off the manufacturing line, also listed as New, Sealed, Unopened, unused. Looks as if it just came from a store and was opened for the first time.
Possibly played a few times if ever, with little evidence of play/wear. Overall in like new condition. May have a few small visible flaws that do not affect play.
Labels are clean but may. Record may have some surface marks excluding it from being Near Mint. The marks are superficial and the sound quality will not be affected at all.
The Jacket is just shy of Near Mint. May contain very light ring wear, shelf wear, staining or small visible flaws, seams and spine fully intact. Overall this grade implies the record/jacket is just shy of being Near Mint (NM). Labels may have one of the following: writing, names, light/little spindle marks.
