Record Labels.

Overall graded VG. Great audio on this when play tested. There is some light crackle, but no skips or jumps at all. Both sides have very light surface marks/scratches to it, but nothing significant. The pictures show this in detail. Labels are in VG condition.
Vinyl has a few light hairlines scratches on both sides, but still retains a great shine.

Side A plays very well with no skips or jumps. It sounds beautiful
Crackles in the quiet parts.
Would grade side A audio as VG
Side B plays very well with no skips or jumps. It sounds beautiful
A few pops and crackles in the quiet parts.
Would grade side B audio as VG.
Overall still a great listen.

I ship on the 1st Tuesday or Saturday after the auction has closed and valid payment has been received. I ship either Expidited or USPS Priority Mail Insured in most cases and shipping is usually free and both are included in the price so keep that in mind as you shop around. USPS PM automatically protects items up to the 1st 50 and anything that sells for over 50 is insured, by me, at no additional cost to you, up to the amount of the sale price
I pack each item with care like I would expect to recieve it. I provide all the boxes and materials to make sure your item gets to you in a safe manner. Additional shipping costs like envelopes, stamps, tape, boxes, etc... and handling are FREE and included in the sale price as well so keep that in mind too I combine shipping where possible and will never overcharge for shipping. I do not knowingly profit on shipping. The buyer never pays shipping charges, unless otherwise stated, on any item purchased from me
I use EBay Global shipping. If there is an auction or sale item that does have associated shipping charges rest assured that I only charge exact shipping to your zip code. All the costs are calculated by size and weight. In many cases, where I charge a flat rate, the cost of the shipping is frequently more

if you just don t want it and want to return it - no problem - just be aware that there is a 10 restock charge and you are responsible for shipping.
EBay requires that I accept returns on any item that is Not as Described - which I will, of course, happily honor. However all that can be avoided by looking closely at the pictures I provide of each item. Ask for additional photos, ask questions, and do your own research before bidding. I provide as many as 24 pictures to EBay to avoid making mistakes. I do not use Photoshop or Stock Images You will get the actual item pictured unless there is more than one in the quantity.
