Vinyl (2) ranges from VG- to Strong VG with numerous light surface sleeve scuffs/hazing that may cause some light background noise, nothing that I can feel though. Labels have light wear with numerous faint spindle marks. Four original heavy stock portrait pictures have a touch of cornerwear/edgewear and a few faint scuffs/marks, see photos. Fold-out poster insert is in rough shape and missing the bottom portion of the poster. Poster has cornerwear/edgewear, light handling wear, pin-holes at corners, splitting at the folded seams and torn towards the edges, and 2 yellowed pieces of tape residue at the bottom edge of the back of the poster. Numbered cover "DOT 0635059" has very heavy wear all-around with moisture damage/staining and splitting edge seams. Gatefold cover has heavy cornerwear/edgewear, splitting entirely along the top edge of back pocket, splitting 1/3 of the bottom right edge seam of front pocket, imminent splitting around the other outer edge seams, moisture damage/staining most notably at the bottom left corner and center of top edge, faint ringwear/hazing, and numerous small scuffs/marks/stains, please see photos.

Here's very invaluable information on how The Beatles White Albums were numbered, and the meaning behind all the sequences:

The first 25 White Albums were numbered with an “A” prefix and then a series of zeros preceding the number (e.g. A0000009). There are always seven digits following the “A” so if it was a single digit number it would be preceded by six zeroes or if it was a two digit number it would be preceded by five zeroes. It is not known what the “A” was indicative of (it may mean “printed in America" or “Apple” but neither is confirmed).
Numbers 26-99 were three digit numbers preceded with a zero and no prefix.
Numbers 100 through approximately 209,999 were preceded with the correct number of zeroes to make them a seven digit number (with no letter prefix)
Beginning around 210,000 to up near 590,000, they were preceded by a zero and had an “A” prefix.
Later copies up to about 1,350,000 remain at seven digits using a leading zero if necessary and are prefixed with a large dot.
The next batch from 1,350,000 up to some point past 2,000,000 are prefixed with an “A” but it's a thinner “A” than used earlier.
From 2,000,000 to around 2,250,000 some are prefixed with a large dot and some with the “A.”
From 2,250,000 up to 3,000,000 the numbers are prefixed with the abbreviation for number (i.e. “No.”). On some of these the “o” in “No.” is raised with the period below it instead of beside it.
For the final numbers over 3,000,000 the numbers are prefixed with a wide “A.”" />
