vinyl grading seems to
vary greatly between dealers, here is an overview of our grading system. We use a modified version of the Goldmine grading system:
When the item is still wrapped and unopened since the time it was
Mint: When the item is brand new and untouched. The
flaws may be insignificant to most people, but a truly MINT item is
absolutely perfect. We NEVER grade an item "MINT", if we are not 100% sure that it is unplayed!
Near Mint (NM): Normally, our highest grade. The item looks new/unused. The vinyl may have
never seen a turntable. Covers are bright and crisp. NO splits or bends at all.
Near Mint Minus (NM-):
An item that has VERY LITTLE (if any) use. The item looks NEARLY new.
The vinyl may have light paper scuffing (light surface discoloration visible
under the light caused by either contact with the paper inner sleeve or
sometimes a minor pressing flaw; SCUFFS DON'T AFFECT ITS PLAY). Covers may
have a minor flaw such as a small wear spot or mark, but look definately
NM. Ususally these small imperfections won't bother anyone, but the
most discerning collector.
Excellent Plus (EX+):
An item with a more noticible
flaw, such as a scuff line on vinyl (a light surface mark that can be
seen, but NEVER heard) or minor ring wear on the cover. These flaws are minor and perfectly acceptable to most collectors.
Items that have been played, but carefuly. The vinyl may have paper scuffs or some light hairlines that cannot
be felt by lightly finger brushing. The vinyl still plays
fine, usually with no noise. Covers may have light ringwear or edge
wear. They may have minor writing or creasing. Still, flaws should not
stop the collector from enjoying the item.
Very Good Plus (VG+):
Items show wear. The records may have light scratches. They should play
through with NO skips or repeats, but MAY have some ticking or
backround noise. Covers may have ringwear, or light staining, or
writing,etc., but will still be intact. VG+ records are good keeper
copies for collectors to fill a gap, or good copies for less
discerning record buyers.
Very Good (VG):
The only items we list in this
condition are RARE titles that someone may want to own, regardless their
condition. However, VG records are NOT trash copies and play ok, with some background noise. Covers may have heavy ringwear, or seam-splits, damages ,etc.
Good (G): We never list in this
condition unless few exceptions, like mega rare records that achieve sky-high prices when they are in EX+ condition or better. These copies are just filler copies in a record collection!
flaws worth noting to potential buyers (scratches, MINOR warps, cut out
holes, saw marks, split cover seams, writing, etc.). Will be listed in
the item descriptions!
note: unless otherwise stated, our products are VISUALLY graded. With
thousands of items available we just don't have the time or staff to
play grade everything. We grade VERY conservatively, which makes happy customers all around the world!
