PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED METAL 1 VINYL
Up for auction is my PiL Metal 1 Virgin 1st Printing all original and never put on a platter to play. Originally released as "Metal Box 1" in 1979 by Virgin Records (containing three 12" 45rpm records), it was deleted from the catalog on 23 November 1979 after an initial release of 60,000 units.
I collected vinyl way back in mid 70's and 80's when friends in the music distribution business would tell me of special items of interest. I never describe Vinyl as Mint unless it's sealed, thus these are listed as NM - but each disc is minty mint! One disc on one side does have a funky looking pattern from pressing machine in the vinyl but DOES NOT affect Sound quality. See pictures. All the white spacer paper is nice and white and crisp along with the song list. The vinyl is shipped inside professional media box and will be place outside of the Factory Album Sleeve Tin, in Mobile Fidelity Professional Original Masters Sleeves. The box has 'Fragile' and 'Do not Bend' stickers on both sides. The Tin shows sign of tarnish on the back side - it is almost impossible to find one without tarnish. The tin has been kept in a clear vinyl sleeve since 1979.
Bid with confidence as I have been a 100%ter since 1998 on eBay. I will be listing some other rare Vinyl in the coming weeks so keep checking my other items. All sales final, no returns. International buyers will be responsible for country fees and taxes where applicable. Please ask questions before bidding. Thanks for looking and God Bless.
