Received my $8.29 Metallica LP today. It was in its LP mailer within an oversized outer box (with no air pillows). Better than the white bag of death! Overall, it was in excellent condition (with just the slightest hint of ring-wear). No seam splits. The parcel originated from Opa-Locka, FL. Only took two days shipping from origin to my PO Box in Alabama. Very nice!!
