The Damned – Machine Gun Etiquette Album – White Label Test Pressing with Proof Sleeve – U.K. 1979, Chiswick Records

MGE Original U.K. 1979 Test Pressing with Proof Sleeve.

This one is in tip top condition, in fact its what my old mate Steve would call a “Mintball”…

It’s an original Test Pressing for the first release.

The proof sleeve doesn’t have flaps (that’s why its a proof sleeve you Numpty) so it can be opened up like a Gatefold to expose the inside of the sleeve.

This is a beautiful item to behold Numbnuts.
