Grading - Shipping - Ordering


Cover/Record [S1/S2 = side1/side2] Please email 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]

Sealed Records

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 description 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]
