I did not even remove the LP, but I requested a new copy - waiting to hear back from them. Have any AA-ers who shop ED (I know, not a good acronym) experienced what I have these past few months with LPs not being sealed?

Although their service is good and they replace what they send, I had the same experience as you. The records would show up like they came out of a garage sale dollar bin. Terrible, I'd say 90% of what arrived had to go back. I gave up and switched to a different retailer and have had no issues. I even received a double LP of what was suppose to be Bob Dylan with a different band inside- even though it was "sealed". Draw your own conclusions.

For the most part, I stick to QRP, MOFI, MPO, and an other presser out of the Czech Republic. I always research the pressing prior to ordering. I refuse to buying anything from United Pressing. AS will take anything back and will even refund shipping as long as you use media mail. I had to send back a Rolling Stones Let it Bleed album, my first to send back to AS. The record was quite bad, it was as though Mic Jagger had a rag in his mouth while singing. Took it back, no questions asked.
