Original 1969 Led Zeppelin II, SD 8236, Monarch press, RL SS. The Holy Grail of the Holy Grail. As you see....it’s an excellent looking record. Graded per Goldmine Standards at Excellent, would have been near mint if not for the only little mark on side one last song. No warp. Labels are perfect. Goes on spindle very hard. Professional clean. Professional pack. Record will ship outside of the sleeve but will not be able to shift. No reserve, will ship to the highest bidder. No international sales, sorry I want this to stay in the states.
(Deadwax matrix etching) STA-691671-CCC STA-691672-CCC Monarch Press!
This is the highly sought after Monarch press, the holy grail of this record, first generation
RL SS mastered and cut by Robert Ludwig at Sterling Sound and pressed at Monarch in Los Angeles. It has the smaller side two deadwax. Thick late 60’s vinyl, about 170 grams. Broadway address. Original inner sleeve still nice and white. Cover is split but is great shape considering it’s almost 50 years old and made from not so durable matte.
Record may have to be insured and signature required. What a great addition to someone’s prized collection.
