The Beatles Butcher Yesterday and Today STEREO 2nd State Shrink LP No Reserve
Capitol ST 2553
Matrix ST-1-2553-A-15 *
The Beatles Yesterday and Today Stereo 'Butcher' Cover 2nd State - original Los Angeles factory pressing. The shrink is missing a bit on the upper left hand side and has retracted a bit from the opening edge. There is some very slight discoloration from age at the opening as well as some of the very light 'shelf wear' appears to be on the actual cover, not only the shrink. There are some fingerprints on the back of the cover itself. No attempt has been made to remove these very light signs of wear. The bottom of the cover has a small 1 1/2" split in the middle. This split the shrink approx. 1/4". The paste over itself is not quite square. (See photos) There does NOT appear to be any signs of ring wear to the cover itself. The color is bright. Three of the four corners are in extremely good condition. (The lower opening corner is just a bit bumped and soft with a 1/4" separation.) The spine is flat and 100% legible. The shrink is still tight. The inner sleeve (orange PE-12-3BL) has creases/wrinkles and a 6 1/2" split at the bottom as well as a tear at the opening in the middle. This copy does not include the 'recall' letter. The vinyl itself is in VG++ condition. High gloss shine and very few, very lightly visible needle marks. Play graded VG++. Sounds incredible! Labels are clean with no spindle marks. (See photos) Really remarkable condition!!! This is definitely a 'keeper' copy. This record is being relisted due to nonpayment. US shipping only! Signature confirmation upon delivery.
I am new to selling on eBay but have been collecting and selling records for over 25 years. I greatly value honesty and grade accordingly. Check out my other rare listings over the next few months. Thank you and good luck!

VG++ The record will have a few visual imperfections that should not affect the sound.
VG+ More surface marks than VG++. The record has been played but well taken care of and should play with very few audible imperfections.
VG The record will display more surface scuffs and marks. Expect some light surface noise in parts or occasional clicks or pops. A VG record will play with minimal noise and will be quite enjoyable.
VG- The record may have deeper more audible scratches. There will be more clicks and pops than that of a VG record but with ll play without skipping.
G The record will have very heavy wear, deep scratches and very apparent surface noise, clicks or pops.
Poor: Records with this grade should be considered unplayable.
