Matrix / Runout (Side A runout): 61300##8 A//1 1
Matrix / Runout (Side D runout): 61300#8 B//1 1 2
Matrix / Runout (Side B runout): 61300#9A#//1 1 2 1 1
Matrix / Runout (Side C runout [hand-etched/machine-stamped]): 613009 B (hand-etched) ########//1 1 (machine-stamped)

The two records play very well on all 4 sides, with minimal background noise. A bit more noise audible in quieter sections on disc 1 but never overpowering the music, so VG+. Disc 2 plays pretty much excellent (EX) throughout. Clean labels.

There is a defect causing side-to-side tonearm movement on the first disc (and lighter on disc 2). It does not affect play on my system. I cannot say how it will play on another system.

The gatefold sleeve is in excellent condition, with close to no creasing to laminate, and the most minimal wear, mostly to corners. Very clean spine.

The two inner sleeves have no split but some writing indicating the artist, record title and the record side.
