Topedge has modest fade and small spot, bottoms of boards have faint surface blemish. Non price clipped ($2.00) second state DJ, same as first state just has the second state blurbs in orange bands. Jacket is very good for age and light color with overall rub/tone, modest wear to extremities with some small chips mostly at spine ends.
