Here is a detailed explanation of my RECORD GRADING SYSTEM:
All items are graded visually and not tested for sound unless otherwise noted. I will also usually try to note any specific details in addition to the grade or photos of the item.
NM Near Mint
COVER: Appears brand new and displaying no imperfections, wear, or signs of handling. I rarely use this grade.
VINYL: Appears absolutely unplayed and bearing no marks, sleeve scuffs, or scratches. I rarely use this grade.
VG Very Good Plus Plus
COVER: Appears as though it were brand new, but on closer inspection will display one or two superficial imperfections, most frequently very light wear to the corners or seams.
VINYL: Presence of one or two visible imperfections that are purely cosmetic in nature i.e. sleeve scuffs or other superficial marks and will not affect play. A VG record will have no scratches.
VG Very Good Plus
COVER: A few noticeable imperfections or signs of wear, but neither prominent nor numerous e.g. a single seam or spine split not exceeding 1 in length, light stains or discoloration, small crease marks, and/or very faint shelf or ring wear .
VINYL: A few visible imperfections. e.g. sleeve scuffs, superficial marks, and/or light non-feelable scratches . The presence of a single light scratch is enough to grade an otherwise clean record VG a VG record will have no more than a few such scratches.
VG Very Good
COVER: Similar kinds of imperfections and signs of wear as on a VG cover, but more pronounced or present in greater numbers e.g. seam or spine splits not exceeding 5 in length . The presence of a single pronounced flaw e.g. prominent shelf or ring wear, marking, staining, writing, or discoloration will cause an LP cover to receive this grade, as will the presence of an appreciable number of minor flaws.
VINYL: Similar kinds of imperfections found on VG records but in slightly greater numbers. There may be a number of light scratches and other marks, but a VG record will not have any scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
VG- Very Good Minus
COVER: An appreciable number of minor imperfections and one or more pronounced flaws such as prominent shelf or ring wear, marking, staining, writing, or discoloration. Seam or spine spine splits will not exceed 8 in length.
VINYL: A number of visible imperfections e.g. the presence of a considerable number of light scratches, or the presence of even one scratch deep enough to be felt with a fingernail .
COVER: Heavy wear and several of the pronounced flaws described above. Splits to the seam or spine may exceed 8 in length.
VINYL: Rife with imperfections of varying degrees e.g. both light scratches and scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail , but tested to play without skips.
COVER: Extreme and/or extensive heavy wear or disfiguration. I rarely sell items with this grade.
VINYL: Extreme wear and deep scratches with confirmed skipping or other play issues. I rarely sell items with this grade.
