Cover/Record [S1/S2 = side1/side2]
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll gladly give you
a detailed grading for the item you are interested in.
M [does not exist]
M- [nothing but the most minor surface marks, high gloss]
EX [a few more of the most minor surface marks, high gloss]
VG++ [a few more minor surface marks, high gloss]
VG+ [a few more minor surface marks with possible light scratch, possible loss of gloss]
VG [many surface marks and/or more scratches that are feelable, possible loss of gloss]
VG- [same as vg, but with more feelable scratches that cause clicks/pops]
G+ [clicks, pops, loss of gloss]
Note: Even my lowest grade G+ does not skip on my turntable. Anything VG++ or higher
are really nice! VG+ is your standard used single/album that also plays very well with
possibly a light feelable scratch that doesn't cause clicks that overpower music or repeat
many times. Also, note that many 45's graded as low as VG play great!
Note: () is an in-between grade. For example VG(+) is between VG and VG+.
wol/c/s = writing on label/cover/sleeve
tol/c/s = tear on label/cover/sleeve
stol/c/s = sticker/tape on label/cover/sleeve
bb = bullet hole = bb hole = cutout hole
notch = cutout notch = saw mark
cc = cut corner
dnap = does not affect play
warp = warp in vinyl
bubble = bubble in vinyl
s1/s2/s3/etc = side 1/side 2/ side 3/ etc...
DJ copy = promo copy
wlp = white label promo [since many promos are not technically white labels,
I usually use DJ copy even though it may be wlp]
na = not applicable [plain cover or plain cover w/ slick...I do not give a grade]
After a sealed record is paid for, I will gladly open it before mailing to make
sure that the record is new & unplayed. If the record is not, I will give a full
refund. Even though it is easy to spot most resealed records from the 60's
[I will mention that in the desription if it looks like a possibility], not all
records from the 70's & 80's are quite as obvious. Please ask for any details about
the seal of a particular record & I will be happy to answer.
EX = excellent condition
VG+ = light wear
CD/DVD [light scuffs that don't effect play]
VHS/Cassette [some where to the box, maybe occasional glitch in tape]
VG = moderate wear
CD/DVD [more scuffs that don't effect play]
VHS/Cassette [more where to the box, cut box, occasional crease in tape]
