That is a rare on for sure. I have an excellent condition nongrooved in my collection so I do not need to compete on this one. But if it still had been missing, then this would be the one to get.
The description on the item, well part of it anyhow:
"PHENOMENALLY RARE UNBOXED AND UNRIDGED STEREO UK DECCA EXPORT!!! Quite possibly the VERY SCARCEST UK pressed Stones LP EVER commercially released even as a standard issue (I'm pretty sure that this is the lowest selling Stones LP EVER to be released), but this smashes the standard ridged version out of the ground in terms of SHEER rarity!!! This is the ONLY unridged AND unboxed example i've EVER seen of this!!! Surely less than a handful of these exist!!!"
And a bit further down the seller tells us:
Summary : A BRILLIANT example of this PHENOMENALLY RARE classic Stereo Export UK Unridged AND Unboxed LP!!! Hard to find in ANY condition, but SERIOUSLY RARE TO FIND ONE AS AWESOME AS THIS!!! YOU MAY NEVER GET THE CHANCE AGAIN, so don't miss out on this scarce opportunity to own a true piece of 60's/70's music history!!! Bid now!!!
Hey, this guy is getting close to xxxrecords item description ;D As usual they get a bit exited and get over to the silly side of life. BUT, I can agree with the seller that this is possibly the rarest of all Decca STEREO Stones LP's

Olle, the innerbag on this HYSYML is not the original, but that is a minor problem as you know. The original stereo FFSS inner was used only in 1965 and maybe in the beginning of 1966. This nongrooved HYSYML is made in 1968-69
