Documented as one of the rarest worldwide Pink Floyd LPs, the withdrawn picture sleeve appears Excellent with very little signs of wear to the silk laminate. Note, there is a 3cm hairline split in one of the top edges which has been historically repaired well.

The original ¥2,000' obi-strip shows minimal evidence of its age with no writing or tears. The posters & stickers remain unused & in Excellent condition with only the lightest spot of foxing to one of the plain white backs. The booklet too is in superb condition & completes the package.

There are a number of comparisons to draw between this rare-as-hen's teeth version of the sleeve & the regular Japanese issue, including spine colour & matte vs laminate finish, but most importantly the design. As with the original UK first issues, the gatefold sleeve opens to the right, with the left edge sealed on both. These rare specimens should keep a keen Pink Floyd collector happy for days on end!

The labels are Near Mint & the vinyl has an incredible deep sheen both sides. We grade the vinyl EX+ as there is just the lightest paper scuff on side one which has no effect on play. A stunning, glorious collectors copy!
