My school found a ton of old LPs in its storages and decided to sell them off for almost nothing. I found a copy of King Crimson's first album which I immediately jumped on and I'm just curious as to how old it might be. It's in fairly good shape and it says it was made in England, here's a pic if it helps.

EDIT: I don't mean the release year, that's written on the label. I'm referring to the actual age of this particular record.

I don't understand this thread at all.

I would imagine it was released in 1969 therefore making the record 41 years old....yeah?

Not the release date, there's Wikipedia for that. I'm just asking if anyone might have an idea or estimate of when this particular record was manufactured. I assume it's from before any of the remasters, seeing as how 1969 is the only copyright year written on it.
A quick bit of looking shows it's one of the original label's runs, produced somewhere between 1969 and 1987, there's no way that I can find of telling exactly when it was made but to a collector that would be worth a pretty hefty sum of money as long as the gatefold sleeve is in pretty good condition.

How are you expecting anyone to know the actual date? If it's the original issue it could be anytime from 1969 onwards, I don't know how anyone could give a more specific answer.

to find out when it was pressed, you need the number on the spine of the sleeve
