VISUALLY, THE THICK VINYL DISC IS IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION! I HAVE EXAMINED THIS UNDER BRIGHT LIGHT AND NOTICED THAT THE PLATTER HAS RETAINED MOST ALL OF ITS  ORIGINAL DEEP RICH GLOSS. THERE ARE SOME EXTREMELY LIGHT PAPER SCUFFS/HAIRLINES NONE WERE "FEEL-ABLE" NOR DID THEY  EFFECT THE INCREDIBLE  LISTENING EXPERIENCE IN ANY WAY! 

  BASED ON THE ABOVE IMPERFECTIONS  I FEEL  THE VINYL  GRADES AS EX TO EX+!

I HAVE  PLAY GRADED THIS MOMENTS AGO AND THE LISTENING EXPERIENCE WAS  INCREDIBLE! 

  THERE WERE  NO NOTICEABLE SKIPS, STICKS, JUMPS, POPS, CLICKS, TICKS OR BURPS!! JUST SOME VERY MINOR NOISE MOSTLY BETWEEN TRACKS 

THE LISTENING EXPERIENCE GRADES NRMT-!!

THE  COVER PRESENTS WELL.  THERE IS NO  WRITINGS, STICKERS OR STAINS! THERE WAS A WELL DONE REPAIR TO A PORTION OF THE UPPER SEAM. THE LOWER SEAM IS JUST STARTING TO SPLIT. THE SPINE IS STRONG AND PERFECTLY READABLE. THERE IS MINOR RING WEAR EVIDENT ON BOTH SIDES (MOSTLY THE FRONT) THE  REVERSE SIDE IS CLEAN & PERFECTLY READABLE.  THERE ARE SOME VERY MINOR CORNER DINGS/CREASING/SOILING AS SHOWN.  BASED ON THE ABOVE IMPERFECTIONS I FEEL THAT THE COVER GRADES EX-

OVERALL THIS CLASSIC LP GRADES AS EX+ AND WILL PROVIDE THE NEW OWNER WITH AN INCREDIBLE LISTENING EXPERIENCE AND MANY YEARS OF HAPPINESS!

ALL RECORDS ARE VISUALLY INSPECTED UNDER BRIGHT LIGHT. I TRY TO PLAY GRADE WHEN POSSIBLE OR AT LEAST IN ANY AREAS IDENTIFIED AS QUESTIONABLE FROM THE VISUAL INSPECTION.

 

MINT

Mint records are in most cases sealed in original shrink wrap. The only wear permissible is to the shrink wrap itself.

NEAR-MINT

 NM records have glossy vinyl. There are no visible defects such as writing, tape, or stickers on the labels. The labels should not contain any spindle marks (from someone blindly trying to put the record on the turntable) The vinyl may have a few extremely fine hairline scratches or light scuffs that do not affect the sound quality. The vinyl will "appear" to have been unplayed (It may very well have been played and well-cared for) The album cover will have NO writing, tape, creases, folds, seam splits ,stains, ring wear or Promo holes or cuts!

VG+ (EXCELLENT)

VG+ records have glossy vinyl. Slight signs of wear, including light scuffs, very light scratches or slight warping that does not  seriously affect the listening experience is permissible. Very slight intermittent background noise mostly in the quiet passages is acceptable. 

The album cover will have no more than three of the following imperfections: light writing such as initials or name in one area, minor creasing, seam splits not larger than 1".  Neatly taped seams of 2" or less. It may also contain very slight ring wear or discoloration, a promo stamp, punch hole or cut-out as originally sold.

VG

VG Records have more obvious flaws such as more pronounced scratches & lack of gloss. Groove wear and scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail are common. When played there will be surface noise but it should not continuously overpower the music. There are NO skips permissible with no more than 1.5 grahams of tracking force. It is common to hear crackling and pops especially in the quiet passages. The labels may contain writing such as a persons name or initials or it may contain a piece of tape or sticker with or without writing. The cover may have some seam splits, writing, tape, stickers, ring wear and scuffs.

VG-

VG- All of the defects listed VG category would be more pronounced. The record will play through without skipping WITH tracking force. A quick skip or two with no more that 2.5 grahams of tracking force are permissible. The record will have many obvious flaws but still enjoyable to listen to. Generally if the record is rare, it is still highly collectible.
