This is THE BEATLES 14 album box set "The Collection". Original Master Recordings.
All of the albums are in stunning near mint condition. The vinyls shines absolutely beautifully and have not a mark. The labels show no spindle marks and have no damage to or around the spindle holes at all. The labels are all beautifully clean and have no writing or marks. There are no signs of the albums ever having been played.
The set comes with the original Geo-Disc which is still in the sealed wrapper.
The book of artwork has on the inside first page the certificate of authenticity showing it's number as 15, 069.
The book which has a rough textured cover, has some handling marks to the outside of the cover but no damage at all. no tears etc.
The album covers are card and glossy. There are no splits rips r tears. No crushing to the spines. Perfect opening edges with no fraying.
Each album comes with a gate fold card inner which states "Original Master Recordings. THE BEATLES. The Collection. MFSL details on the back. All of these are near mint with no damage at all.
Each album has the original paper plastic inner bag. All are mint with no damage at all.
The box as you can see, has a tear along the top outer edge of the right side door, a split to the top right edge of the right door and a split to the outer edge of the bottom of the right door. With care and patience I do think some neat repairs could be made. The rest of the box is excellent. Just a couple of small scuffs on the back. The hinges and front catch are fine.

The Beatles: The Collection was a vinyl box set of UK released Beatle album, remastered at half speed from the original stereo master recordings. Each album was pressed on virgin vinyl by the Victor Company of Japan (JVC) ensuring the best sound quality possible. The album covers were replaced with photographs of tape boxes and log sheet. The original album covers were included in a booklet which also featured a certificate of authenticity as this was a limited edition collection.
MFSL repressed a second run of the Beatles Box Set for a total production run of 25,000 until October 1985.
Fabulous box set.
