Here is the holy grail of Iron Maiden records it is the Trooper uncut test pressing for the cut to shape picture disc. What makes this uncut version of Trooper special is that it is the very first pressing with the full V cut in the top corner of the picture, it truly is a gem and the rarest of all uncuts. This first uncut version was released in tiny quantities maybe 15-20 making this the holy grail, most if not all are now in the hands of collectors and this version may never be for sale again. The record has a bit browning on the clear part of the vinyl due to age, this is not caused by negligence but a natural chemical reaction between the vinyl and the plastic sleeve it was placed in, this was very common during the 70s and 80s with the type of plastic used to make the vinyl it is known as tea staining. Lots of picture discs and clear vinyls made in that era will have this tea staining, it just proves its originality and shows what a great piece of Maiden history this record really is.
