I don't believe he get any record from that seller - look at his feedback - all he had up for sale before is "crap" - so in some days he is not longer a member on eBay - just collect the money first : ((

On Apr-25-11 at 10:58:25 PDT, seller added the following information:
Only 400 copies of this mega-rarity were pressed -- 200 for the American market and 200 for the UK market. The UK issue had a UK Decca label LP disc (catalogue number RSM-1) issued in a US sleeve (with catalogue number RSD-1) whilst the American disc was issued on the blue London label with an RSD-1 catalogue number on both the sleeve and label.
The Vinyl has some very light barely visible surface marks (not scratches) that do not affect play, though there is one small scratch on track 4, side 2 (Sympathy For The Devil) which causes an audible click for approx 15 seconds. Apart from that minor defect, the audio quality is clear and crisp with near silent track breaks, free from noise or crackle.
Depending which sources you read, the version of Love In Vain is apparently an alternate take unavailable from any other source -- though this has often been disputed.
The picture on the sleeve was taken during the Let It Bleed recording sessions. It is a sepia toned shot of the band in the studio against a white background with the band name at the top and 'A Special Radio Promotion Album In Limited Edition Not For Sale' text.
Due to the white background there is some light age discolouration visible to the front of the sleeve - though not excessive. What is amazing is that this copy is free from cut-out holes -- and more notably sleeve splits, which are present in almost every other copy of this album that has surfaced for sale over the last 10 years!
The back of the sleeve shows a black and white picture of Mick in the centre. To the left is a list (complete with tracklistings) of all 13 US Stones albums released prior to Let It Bleed. The right hand side has the tracklisting (see below) and the following text...
"This album has been prepared for radio stations only by The Rolling Stones as a program aid. It was felt that most stations have in their library both volumes of The Rolling Stones Hits LP's (NPS-1 And NPS-3) and that one more LP, assembled especially for radio stations, could be of great help in programming. This LP, consisting of 14 Rolling Stones selections, spans the complete recorded history of The Rolling Stones beginning with one of their earliest recordings (Route 66) and ending with a brand new selection which will be included in The Rolling Stones' next LP (Love In Vain).
This LP, then, in combination with the other two hits LPs can provide radio stations of a comprehensive history of The Rolling Stones."
Route 66 - 1964, included on The Rolling Stones Walking The Dog - 1964, included on The Rolling Stones Around And Around - 1964, included on 12x5 Suzie Q - 1965, included on 12x5 Everybody Needs Somebody - 1965, included on The Rolling Stones Now Off The Hook - 1965, included on The Rolling Stones Now I'm Free - 1965, included on Decembers Children She Said Yeah - 1965, included on Decembers Children
Under My Thumb - 1966, included on Aftermath Stupid Girl - 1966, included on Aftermath 2000 Man - 1967, included on Their Satanic Majesties Request Sympathy For The Devil - 1968, included on Beggars Banquet Prodigal Son - 1968, included on Beggars Banquet Love In Vain - 1969, included on Let it Bleed
A true investment grade collectable, and a TOP rarity, indeed!!

I BELIEVE SOME SEAM RESTORATION CAN BE DONE BUT I WILL LEAVE THAT UP TO THE BUYER. THE RECORD COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL MONO INNER SLEEVE IN VG CONDITION WITH NO SEAM SPLITS AND THE DECCA PROMO BOOKLET IN VG++ CONDITION. HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THIS MEGA RARITY IN THIS NO RESERVE AUCTION.
THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THIS RECORD ON THE INTERNET AND I ENCOURAGE SHOPPERS TO DO THEIR OWN RESEARCH. BELOW IS SOME INFORMATION I HAVE ACCUMULATED.
Released in 1969, the album is put together of old songs and one then new previously unreleased track, Love In Vain.The record label has the name "Promotional Album" printed on it and this is the name by which this legendary LP is known today.
The LP was pressed in the USA for distribution to local radio stations all over the US. It was also decided that a few copies were to be made in the UK on the Decca label. The covers for both US and UK pressed vinyls were made in the USA.
The US LP on London gets the catalogue number RSD-1 and the UK made Decca album is named RSM.1. However the empty cover sent from US to UK has the US catalogue number RSD-1. This sometimes causes confusion but, the UK vinyl with the catalogue number RSM.1 on the label belongs with the US made Decca RSD-1 cover.
How many did they press? The Decca version is extremely rare and maximum of one or two copies per year are sold on the market. The Decca letter that came together with some LP's states that 200 copies were made. This appears to be correct as the LP is rarely available anywhere.
A much larger quantity was pressed in the USA on London Records. It is not known how many were actually pressed but an estimate of 1000-1500 copies would not be far from the actual quantity. The US LP is also relatively common, some ten copies a year come up for sale on the market.
Since the Decca letter states that 200 were made for the UK,it is assumed that 200 were made for the US. But, logically the United States is much larger than the UK and has more radio stations that would need a copy of the album. So, it is probable that many more were made for the US.
Some copies have the same poster that was included in early Let It Bleed LP’s. It is not known if all LP’s had the poster.
Most of the LP's sold in the past 20 years had the red Mono inner bag. The LP is actually a Mono pressing. A red Mono bag is the correct one.
The two most common signs of a counterfeit are: 1) no matrix number in the trail-off vinyl; and 2) no spine writing. One should also look carefully at the cardboard of the cover. Both original US and UK have the old-style 1960s thick-stock US LP jackets and not the thinner "clar-foil" style LP sleeves found in the UK.
THERE WAS A MINT COPY THAT SOLD IN AUSTRAILIA ON MAY 2ND THIS YEAR FOR $4,550.00. I WILL GIVE THAT SELLERS DESCRIPTION OF THE ALBUM BELOW.
"THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND. THIS IS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT THE RAREST UK ROLLING STONES LP EVER MADE - AND THE ULTIMATE ROLLING STONES RARITY. JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE.

Fantastic, yet another signed copy has come to light. Cover seams to be in bad condition so lets see how much it will be sold for. The interesting thing here is also that this copy has a history behind it.
I will grabb the pictures and add it to my page. Lots of RSM.1 for sale lately, that's good.
This is a very rare LP in which was released only as special radio promotion album in 1969 from the Rolling stones.
It is the UK released version in which was released under Decca meaning it has the catalogue number RSM. 1. This being a very rare version in comparison to the American released version as it is claimed that only 200 had been released, which is why approximately only 1 or 2 are sold on the market every year.
The LP cover is signed on the back with all the signatures from the band, and i am aware that it has been acknowledged that Charlie's signature was done by Bill. But nonetheless the signatures are still authentic and please refer to this website if you have any queries about the Lp being sold here. www.stonesondecca.com/4A13_Promotional.html - It contains very well researched facts into the LP in which clears up anything that i have missed out.
I have gained this Lp through my mother having a connection to Kenny Everett as her aunty was married to him. Kenny Everett received a copy when he was Dj and the LP has simply been passed down into my mothers hands over the years.
Route 66 / Walking The Dog / Around And Around / Everybody Needs Somebody to love / Off The Hook / Suzie Q / I'm Free
She said yeah / Under My Thumb / Stupid Girl / 2000 Man / Sympathy For The Devil / Prodigal Son / Love In Vain
The Lp itself hasn't been played in years so is in rather good quality, running smoothly with no jumps. I should note however that the packaging is not in the best of conditions as the main cover has been split, making the back cover and front cover unattached from each other. But none the less the artwork is still clearly visible and the signatures provided can all be seen very clearly. The sleeve containing the Lp does contain a bit of roughage with crease marks and slight visible tears, but again you can clearly see the information provided on it and is all visible to read. Please refer to the pictures provided so you can judge for yourself on the state of the Lp and packaging.
This is something not to be missed out on! This specific Lp is a must for Stones collectors and is extremely hard to get hold of... so this is your chance to get in there while you can!
Please inbox me if you require any additional information or have any queries, as i will gladly clear them up for you.
