THE BEATLES PLEASE PLEASE ME 1963 1st UK MONO PRESS BLACK / GOLD PARLOPHONE LABELS DICK JAMES CREDITS EARLY 1A / 1M STAMPERS ZMT TAX CODE EX Vinyl / EX+ Audio VG++ Labels / VG+ Sleeve This is a great opportunity to own a stunning example of the Beatles debut album. This is a true 1st pressing with Dick James credits on both sides of the famous black and gold labels plus this has the hardly ever seen ZMT tax code, to add even more this also has one of the very first sets of stampers 1A & 1M meaning this was probably pressed within the first week of sale. Normally these early pressings are pretty worn out but this is a stunning example and as the actual vinyl surfaces are wonderful and show very little in the way of previous use, this really has been played sparingly over the years and has obviously been very well cared for by its owner. The labels are wonderful and show all the gold lettering astonishingly well, both spindle holes do have some slight wear but nothing to detract from the beautiful record. The outer sleeve is of course the original gold sleeve with the Angus Mcbean credit to the far right and apart from some rear flip back wear it is still in very decent shape, please refer to photos.lastly to put the iceing on the top of this Beatles cake is the original Emitex inner sleeve which in keeping with the rest of the album id in fantasic shape with no splits or tears and virtually no creasing. In summary this is solid example of a true early 1st press and one that you will find hard to beat on looks and audio, at least at any sensible price anyway!~I will post to anywhere in the world via the EBay international postal service which I find works great and all records will be packaged using professional record mailers.
