I hate to be honest, but you really should take the word and letter MINT (M), out of your buying hopes, because it rarely ever exists in the world of vinyl, even if it's brand new and SEALED. I have yet to EVER run into an LP or 45, that is stone cold MINT. Even my expensive jazz albums bought brand new from A.P. have something minor, a stray pop or click. Sure, I have seen and own many records that LOOK mint, but I know better to not expect it actually sound that way. Note: I can live with the occasional noise, as I realize that is the way that it is with vinyl and that is why they invented CD's, SACD's, BluRay Audio, DVD-A and on and on and on!
