THE RECORD GLEAMS LIKE NEW AND COULDN'T LOOK ANY BETTER. ALL OF THE ORIGINAL LUSTRE HAS BEEN RETAINED.THE DISC LOOKS TOTALLY FLAWLESS IN DAYLIGHT. THERE ARE NO VISIBLE MARKS OR ANY SIGNS OF HANDLING ON THE DISCS, AND EVEN UNDER  A MAGNIFIED LED HALO I SEE A COUPLE OF EMBEDDED NON SOUNDING DULL STREAK LINE SON SIDE ONE AND A COUPLE OF NON SOUNDING ANGEL HAIRLINE HANDLING LINES ON SIDE TWO. ALL INVISIBLE IN NORMAL LIGHT
