Label: Reader’s Digest/RCA Custom Records
Box cover: This box is almost as old as I am. It’s lived. I’m still pretty amazed how nice this remains after all this time. I did have to reconstruct both the purple and white borders but that wasn’t too hard. I also removed some scratches.
Box insert: Again, this has browned with age. I replaced all the white areas and suddenly it’s new again!
Sleeves: All of them had to be carefully adjusted at the scan stage as the scanner had it’s own ideas of what color each of these should be. I did replace all of the color but they all perfectly match what I hold in my hand. The backs of them were handled by replacing all the white areas. I tried it on one and the text held up nicely so I did that with all of them.
Labels: Labels are in great shape but all have slight variances so this took a long time. Of course, all the spindle holes were replaced as well. A difficulty I didn’t see coming was handling the records to get them on the scanner. These labels absorb oil from the skin so I had to be very careful not to touch them while getting them to and from the scanner. Oh, the humor. Still, I got it done and no records were harmed in the scanning.
