The record has everything needed for a basic bibliographic record, but 
please note my comment about the 008 below.

You've set the Date1 field (positions 07-10 of the 008) to '9999'. 
However, since you do have a publication date available to you in the 
260$c, it would be better to plug that into the Date1 field.
