The records themselves are graded at least excellent, with only a couple of light surface marks when viewed under normal domestic lighting. Superb sound quality in what is a brilliant recording and performance, with NO jumps, ticks, or crackle and just a very occasional very light dust pop (being hyper-critical). Otherwise more or less faultless playback.
Minimal to no spindle wear. Labels very clean, the very lightest spider marks (virtually none).
The box is graded a bit less than excellent, clean and sturdy, with no just some light wear. The original inner sleeves are in excellent condition with no wear to speak of. The booklet also has no wear to speak of. All in all it would be difficult to find a better copy of this particular item.
