****A note on the
Grading is not an exact science. We try to grade
We don't use "EX" or "VG++" or
1) Sealed - Sealed
records will be listed as “Sealed”.
2) Near Mint - If
the record appears to be in flawless condition without any defects it will be
graded as "Near Mint". A
near perfect, possibly unplayed record.
scuffs, scratches or marks and the record will be graded as "VG+". Typically this will
mean a lightly played record with minimal and/ or occasional surface noise
only. A better-than-average used record. Play is fairly quiet.
grading "VG" will be
applied to a record which has been played a number of times and plays with some
intermittent surface noise in the form of low level or background crackle,
'clicks', 'pops' etc. However, although surface noise is present and is part of
the listening experience, it should not overwhelm the music or be too
intrusive.An average used record. Some moderate surface noise.
graded as "VG-" will play
with surface noise which is distracting or intrusive or 'competing' with the
music. It should still however play through without 'skips' or 'jumps' and
should still be listenable. A below-average used record. Not trashed -
playable, but somewhat noisy in parts or throughout.
graded as “G” will either have
‘skips’ or jumps, sound terribly noisy incl. possible distortion in the vocals
and/ or be unplayable. An abused record. Only value is in its rarity or as a
PLEASE NOTE: With many records play is variable. This will be reflected
in the grading as, for example:VG-/VG or VG/VG+ or
1) Like new –
pristine –9 or 10 out of 10
2) Very Good –
minor defects only, such as a tiny mark or crease, or a hint of corner wear –
will otherwise be almost flawless –7 or 8 out of 10
3) Good – light
wear is evident, but cover still intact, with (for example) legible spine, some
shine to laminate, no serious ring wear etc., well preserved –5 or 6 out of 10
4) Acceptable/ Fair
– far more noticeable wear, incl. ring wear, corner wear, seam splits etc.
although cover is still intact, functional –4 out of 10
5) Poor –
shocking condition incl. pronounced ring wear, seam splits, writing, dirt etc.–3 out of 10 or less
1)Sealed- Sealed CD's will be listed as“Sealed”.
2) Near Mint
Near perfect. No obvious signs of use, it may have been played - but it
has been handled very carefully.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Near Perfect. No obvious wear, it may have
only the slightest of marks from handling.
A few minor scuffs/scratches. This has been played, but handled with good care - and certainly not abused.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Slight wear, marks, indentations, it may possibly have a cut-out hole (or similar).
Quite a few light scuffs/scratches, or several more-pronounced scratches. This has obviously been played, but not handled as carefully as a VG+.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: More wear, marks, indentations than a VG+. May have slight fading, a small tear/rip, or some writing.
There are a lot of scuffs/scratches. However it will still play through without problems. This has not been handled with much care at all.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Well worn, marked, more obvious indentations, fading, writing, than a VG, possibly a more significant tear/rip.
The CD may not play some or any of the tracks, or contain a large amount of jumps and/or be unplayable. An abused CD. Only value is in its rarity or as a ‘placeholder’ copy
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Very worn. It may have obvious writing on it, it may be ripped/torn, or significantly faded, or water damaged.
