Notes

This is considered Cover version #3 (pasted slick over cardboard).

Label has "MFD. BY APPLE RECORDS, INC" in green print at the bottom perimeter of side 1.

"Her Majesty" is listed on the label but NOT on the cover.

Cover photo is enlarged/cropped so that the manhole cover is NOT seen at the bottom of the photo, as it is in other printings of the cover.

Abbey Road was the only Beatles album to have print-on-board covers upon initial release. When Capitol's pressing plants ran out of the print-on-board covers, Apple hired Queens Litho to print slicks for these THIRD (and final) BATCH Covers (SC2A, Spizer).

The back cover slicks were made from the album's original artwork and accordingly do not list Her Majesty on the back cover. The front cover image was enlarged to allow for the front slick to be wrapped around to the back cover. Thus, the picture on the front shows less of the trees and crosswalk (the square sewer in the road is missing) and has a larger image of the Beatles.

GRADING:

Grading is done visually under a strong light. WE DO NOT PLAY GRADE. Our vinyl grading is based on the Goldmine standard and is as follows:

NM: This is our highest grading. Record should look unplayed, shiny, glossy, no visible marks. A darn perfect record

VG++: Darn near close to NM

VG+: Record may have a few minor marks or surface scuffs. A RECORD THIS GRADE SHOULD BE ACCEPTABLE TO DJ

VG: Record will have light scratches, noticable marks, and surface noise may be apparent. A RECORD THIS GRADE MAY OR MAY NOT BE ACCEPTABLE TO DJ

VG-/G: This darn record is rough/Darn this record! A RECORD THIS GRADE IS NOT A DJ COPY

All of our records are shipped flat rate. There is no additional charge if you buy more than one record. Due to increases at the post office the new rate for overseas is a lot more but flat rate now applies to international orders. In order to save money it is wise to purchase multiple records!

U.S: (Media Mail) $4.00 for 12", and (First Class)$3 for 45s.

Europe: $22 for 12", and $14 for 45s.

Japan & Australia: $22 for 12", and $14 for 45s.
