The lyric insert is M-.  The poster is M- with no rips, tears, or holes.

The disc is M- and looks unplayed.  Beautiful disc!

A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.

Background:  Led Zeppelin III, released in 1970, was the band’s third album.  The album reached #1 in the U.S. and the UK, helped by radio play of the single “Immigrant Song,” which reached #16 on the U.S. singles chart.

Allmusic.com gave Led Zeppelin III a rare 5 star review:

On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation that gives the music extra depth.
