A2/B2 matrix in deadwax of run out groove.

Thick heavyweight vinyl believed by some to be the 'finest' and most true encapsulation of this historical recording as the first pressing was pressed direct from the original masterplate. "These 1st pressings were straight from the masters and nothing even gets close to them today. They play with a deep clear warm clarity and have to be heard to be believed!".

There is a distinct bluish tint/tinge in the black ink of the cover.

The right front opening of the gatefold cover is sealed with a fold over flap that is glued inside the opening.

Inner sleeve is a distinctive polythene lined die cut black semi matt paper with white printed text stating 2 patent numbers bottom left [112555/1072844] and 'MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN' bottom right.

With a small round sticker white text on black stating 'Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon'.
