RECORD CONDITION V+ (Well preserved, looks nice! The record has been popular back in the days, a bit of groove wear visible. Audio quality is 6/10, some clicks audible here and there, a bit of surface sound, common to used 78rpm records, not overpowering music, still very enjoyable record! A tiny bit of wavy in the beginning, with a higher needle weight plays like a charm. One needle jump in the beginning of "Faschisten Marsch" side. Record comes with rare original company sleeve!)

Most of these were destroyed after the war, near impossible to find a copy nowadays!
The record can be played also with a modern turntable, which has a shellac stylus.

78rpm records are sent in special boxes, between cardboard layers and softening material around.
