Howdy from the Record Sheriff! 

And welcome to my record auctions. I pride myself on listing only the finest items. Collectability and Quality are the keywords.

All records on sale have been fully playtested and are guaranteed to not have playback defects such as skips, sticks, excessive surface noise and/or serious degrading in audioquality (not part of the original pressing).

When available the original inner sleeve is included, but all records I sell come into a new quality innersleeve which will be put next to the sleeve into a plastic outer sleeve.

I do ship worldwide. Please read my note below the pics if you are in one of the excluded countries. I am shipping from the Netherlands, not from Germany. Thank you.


The Kinks - Arthur // Orig UK '69 PYE Stereo LP Top Copy



Label/Cat#:    PYE NSPL 18317

Matrix:    A-1*T/B-1*T


The Record: EX+ (high gloss, would be M- if not for a tiny scuffing on side 2 which does not sound, audio is EX+ very clean)

The Labels: EX- (mostly unblemished but few dark spots)

The Sleeve: EX- (very nice example considering the fragile nature of this sleeve, no tears, no creasing)

The Insert: VG+ (fully intact, only the pull handle has wear as usual)

We use the Record Collectors Grading system with just one + or – behind the grade. Mint minus is the highest grade we will use for *any* used item. Records are critically viewed under strong halogen light. 

Mint (M): The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet. booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records marked as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.

Excellent (EX): The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.

Very Good (VG): The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects is acceptable

Good (G): The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.

The record will be packed carefully in a thick sturdy package with record behind the sleeve.
